    I saved my T/A from the scrap pile and boy it was a long ordeal. I was off work at that time (laid off) so my time was well spent!? The car had to be put on doughnut spares to be able to even get thing on the trailer! The leaf springs were through the backseat and resting on the inside of the trunk, the rear frame rails were completely gone. After reconstructing the frame rails, and countless hours of body work, we added a 8 point roll cage, 468 BB chevy with a tunnel ram and 2 780 Hollys. We put 342 posi in the rear end. Now three years later, we are under way for yet another transformation....My wife just got me some 33x18.50x15 so of course we'll have to reconstruct the rear end once again (oh yeah shes getting a tub job!) and of course little odds and ends! Always work in progress, but the beautiful thing is not only does she go fast, she's also a driver! biggrin image

    Went to a car dealer/museum in the local area. He had 3 69 Superbirds in stock..........1 with a hemi (for 850,000 dollars) the other two with 440's for a LITTLE less........

    There was nothing more saddening than to see three cars, all of which were designed from the ground up to do 200mph for 500 miles, sitting there, gathering dust, and knowing these cars will never be driven again.............Just wiped with a cloth diaper, in an air conditioned and heated storage area..........No matter who owns them, the current or future owner will never be able to afford to drive them.

    And thats just wrong

    I have a 1977 y82/SE bandit car I have been working on for about a year. I drive it and enjoy it. I take it to car shows so other people can enjoy it and they do. It won first place at last car show in its class.
