Sure, it is really strange. He posted so much and then suddenly stopped. Last activity here was ~2 years. Anyway, usually he should get mails about updates to this thread. My guess now is, that something happend to the car. To sad. Maybe one day we know...

He is or was very Near Cody in Vancouver area . we are 1 month away from 3 years to the last post , the project was awesome with all the creativity but the budget must have been over the top  , the craftsmanship was over the top as well .

I seem to recall reading some where that they closed up shop and were not doing any more work. I can't recall where I saw that though.

Is this project still alive? Bruning's website seems to be non-existent anymore. ????

I've been searching around for anything new, but all I can come up with is from 08. It might just be poor googling on my part but it looks like it may be on hiatus.

They are still there - Doing very high end builds.  As far as the status of the Challenger, I have no idea.  With the way things are I bet he had to focus on the builds and less on the internet.  Cris is a metal master.  Check out this build for Ned Jackson.  It's cool.  http://www.lateral-g.net/forums/showthread.php4?t=17432&page=41

Over at Modern Mopar Forum, they are reporting that the owner of this build has passed away, which would explain why no additional posts on the build.

This is the first time I've read this tread. I've literately been sitting at my computer for the last hour reading it and flicking back and forth through the awesome pictures. I was actually devastated when the updates stopped on page 25....

That's a shame about the owner.

Cool link bigblue73.

This is the first I am reading this thread too. And I was hoping by the time I got to page 26, it would be pictures of it completed. That sucks!

Someone out there knows something on the whereabouts and situation on this car.
Perhaps now a family settlement issue?
What to do with it?

His last vision knowing his time was coming up?

This car will re-surface.
Who or where will yet to remain the mystery for now.
