Now that's nice.
Mark, can you talk about the options on this car? Which version of your three, any extra goodies, hornet sting, photon torpedoes, etc.

five door roll top dashboard
DVD player and LCD screen
stereo upgrade
detect-a-scope
five light flasher

silver painted seat buckets, wraparound dash edging, and inner door panel sweeps
functional flamethrower
batbeam antenna
Futura door sill tread plates
trunk
rear view camera

show car level fit and finish

Car #22 is coming along: We've mounted the triple rocket tubes, the rocket exhaust tube band, the rear grilles, and the parachute packs. We're doing final fitment of the windshields, and prepping to install the headlight grilles and carpeting. By next weekend, the car should be drivable and ready for exhaust and wheel alignment (and final polish!).
