This list will surely never be finished and some who has helped and supported me through this process may not be on the list due to my slow and bad memory. Please forgive me...

  • My father for being a patient advisor, technician, landlord, etc ... My mother for being an advisor, landlady, lending me the owen and freezer when needed (ie for assembly of bearings and bushings on shafts), cook, etc ... Unfortunately, my father died suddenly and unexpectedly in 2014. In addition to all the other tragic around this, I was suddenly alone in the restoration work, without the details around the car that hasn't yet been clarified and without his wast amount of knowledgde in the technical area. And he will not get to experience the car's completion. I miss you dad...
