I spy a triple headlight KX 500 in one of your pictures. I didn't know you are a bike guy too. I have a 93 KX 500 that was raced numerous times in Baja back in the Kawi heyday.

Possibly from the display that was at Terrible's that had to come down when they closed the casino last year.

yes, the KX500 you see is none other than Danny Hamel’s 1994 Baja 1000 winning motorcycle. This Bike is on loan from Kawasaki and is sitting in limbo at our shop until we can find a spot for it. Good eye guys, good eye. Also in our shop is the Mike Burke class 8 Ford truck restored and donated by the Fusting Family from Vista California. Mark Fusting has raced in 1600 and class 12, but really like rebuilding old Stroppe Broncos and of course this Ford. You should have seen it when he bought it......WOW!

Sneak peak. Here’s the first pieces fresh out of the mold. The front end is done, Weston is working on the rear quarter panels and should be done this week. Plan is to have them in my possession by 4th of July weekend. I will let everyone know when they will be available for purchase from McQueen Prototype design. Very excited to see them on the truck!

Big day for the Toyota and anyone that owns a 1984-1988 Toyota SR5. McQueen Prototype and Design has finished the molds for the PPI 001 Ivan Stewart Toyota and they are AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE! Contact Weston at (310)-327-2337.

The Finish on the panels are fantastic and they went out of there way to strengthen them by adding a lip to the quarter panels and hood to make them more rigid.

Can’t wait to mount these up and see the final fit and finish. Unfortunately that will have to wait a few weeks as Challenger IV is being cleaned up for a show in Monterey in 5 weeks...
