Wow!!! Small world Bob, I live 18 miles from Lansing and I have gone to a bunch of car shows over the last 8 or 9 years and have seen your brother and his car at a lot of them. I have stopped while passing by the car and talked to your brother.
It takes a lot of time to restore/rectify a car...mine took 1 1/2 years nights and weekends so I can appreciate your brothers work. Mine is nowhere near the "extra time" your brother put into his for the additional dragon features.
Next time you talk to him ask him if he remembers a 69 Chevelle SS with a tri coat red paint job....I've won several "best paint" and "best 60's" with my old grocery gettter at a number of car shows.....and tell him I said Hi.
A very wise man once said.......
