    Thanks GSC!! I don't know if I have a style though. If you line BEER RUN, Fugsley, Flexy, and Firewing up, I don't think most people would think the same person built them. :mrgreen:

    Went and took a walk around video and on the way I discovered this great photo spot. It's actually a neighbors parking pad down the lane, but I never noticed it before even though I ride by it on my practically every one of my rides.

    Glad you like it. There are quite a few Columbias this year.

    It actually quite well. Did you watch my ride video?
    SAVANNAH RIDE VIDEO : :arrow: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6eZZ0xlw ... e=youtu.be

    I have taken enough photos of my bikes around Savannah that I have quite a few favorite spots. It really helps that I live in such a wonderful place, but I find new places to try all the time. I have been riding by that checkered parking pad for years and never thought of taking a photo there.

    Re: Firewing - 1953 Columbia 3 Star DeLuxe - THANKS!!!

    Still trying to let it sink in that I went from BEER RUN to Second place. Thanks for all of the support and for the votes that were cast for Firewing. I have mad respect for all of you guys and gals! Thanks for making this such a fun brotherhood of builders!
