 Very happy to be your friend. Phil Lampman keeps a very timely picture review of our successful activity to get the 77 Atlas into something we can all be proud of. With Don Mock's enthusiasim, knowledge and leadership the restoration will be fantastic. The entire crew is a great team and the work time goes by quickly.
