Here's a shot of what Guido's used to look like. We had done some extensive work on one of Vito Carlinni's cars, and when he was presented with the invoice, all he said was " I GUNna feex this place up and you like ! Vito owns Badabing Construction, and we couldn't refuse his offer. :P Ya know what I mean..... Here's the New facade, and we like it. Still some trim work to do, but we're pretty happy with it. Maybe we can do more work for Vito and he'll do the interior too :unsure:

Thanks for the comments guys ! The original shot of Guido's is a Bud's of mine real shop that I used as the model. It was originally built as a Mobil Station and even had a rounded corner for the office (Era late '40's). I scaled it and added 2 cross bays in the rear. I'm not sure about those yet seen'n what a monster this became to be ! The jury is still out. MAYBE I'll open up the doors and do a full blown Dio out of this some day. Right now, I just want to mount it on a more stabel base and get some details finished for a photo drop. Thanks again Bro's !!

I love it and like what Sgt. Tom said. The hummingbird feeder adds a festive effect, like a hot air baloon.
