As it is, my ten year old's favourite song right now is "The Final Countdown". I'm on my way to pick him up from school, and I'm showing him your vid. He's gonna love it. (OMG! My name is in the credits! Thank you sir, for being one of the inspirations for doing what we do here!)

Was driving the other day and heard "The Final Countdown" on the radio and was immediately brought back to this project.

What a great project. Cannot believe it's been nearly 20 years now. WOW
Man, will my cab EVER be finished?

Thanks for posting this. The passage of time is crazy. When I stated this project it had been 20 years since i was a kid spending Saturday in the arcades.  That felt like an incredibly distant, deeply nostalgic past. Now itís been 20 years since the first post in this thread and it only seems like a few years have passed. Strangest thing.

It's been almost exactly 20 years since I registered. Time does indeed really fly.

There were only a very few projects that stick out from the time, and this one is surely one of them. It was amazing to see the hobby evolve.
