DOUBLE WOW
Fantastic. I passed one of those a few years ago on the way to Alice.
Great job mate.

Bob.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Good thing you like making wheels. Fantastic job, great attention to detail. Authentic. Bet the trucking/oil company would love having that in their front window. Thanks for sharing.
