Walking it would not be bad its building it to begin with. Hauling all the concrete up there on a wheel barrow.

I seriously would not even do that for a million dollars. I hate heights!

Ditto, and just think this time it was done with one eye covered by the
camera and one hand one the camera. Cant stand heights. You could
not get me close to there.

What do you mean I cant spin it like a small block?

I'd do it. I love heights. I would want the proper restraints / rigging but as long as I was tied off I'd be all over that.

1990 GT, 347 / 76mm turbo setup OUT AND GONE!

New setup going in. Dove headed 545 with a plate kit to 400, progressive, Th400 etc. etc. etc.

This may have been posted before, but I'll toss it in again just for fun: http://www.darkroastedblend.com/2008...ld-series.html

And, along the same lines, if you like urbex, this would have been beyond cool, not to mention freakin' dangerous: http://sleepycity.net/viewpost.php?b=67 Long read, but worth it. It no longer exists.
