Hell yes I will finish my car. After a 3 month non stop thrash,I finished the car last Friday. I was still bolting parts and such on Friday morning @ 5AM and had to leave for the BOPC Peach Blossom show in Atlanta by 9 AM. I had to pick up my buddy who painted the car @ the Atlanta airport that afternoon. I still like some small things and fine tuning but the hard part is over.Note the very rare factory shoulder belts. Here's some pictures of the car as it is now.

****The 70 in the background is sold,I'm delivering the car this weekend to Raleigh,NC.************

My guess? You will never finish it. You need to donate it to my shop. We'll sit on it for a while until the smoke clears and get it done in 2 weeks. JK, Great looking car. Excellent choice of colors and wheels. I want to put red lines on mine but they don't make a big enough tire to my liking. Damn, that's nice lookig.

Haha you have at least another week of phone theropy to before he actually buys that ticket!

You know I like like to make some kind of comment about your posts but in this case the car looks perfect!!! Just one question. If and when you put the correct air filters on it can you post new pictures so we can see how it is supposed to look?

I'm broke & can't afford the foams for the screens. I'm not accepting any calls from north of RT 40.

Beautiful job, Mike. That thing should be a trophy magnet and you'll have to buy a bigger hat.

No bigger hat for me. I'm not into show cars or car shows that much. After the Olds Nats,it becomes a driver.

Thanks much to all who gave kind words about me & the car. It's no big deal,it's just something we all have in common and there's a lot of nice cars in this community.

Thanks Again

Mike
