i didn't find a thread like this on the 1st/2nd gen section... just wanted to get some comments on the car.








yes i bought this. already talked to a body shop who restores muscle cars. i heard it will take 6-7 pcs of 4ft x 8ft of grade 1.0 sheetmetal (pls comment on grade, i don't know what gage it is) to restore it.

how bad is that? consider that the car is still somewhere in USA, not outside the country.

Wooo Hoooo. I saw Angeles City and my eyes perked up (and other stuff). Spent a month out there on leave once, many years ago..

That thing is a find out there. Some serviceman prolly had it shipped over huh?? It doesnt look bad at all from here. Thats a very doable project.

It will be one of a kinda Im sure. Oh, unless you want to toss on some standard A.C. accessories LOL J/K Some of the best times during my lil 6 year stint were had in AC... Please!!! Keep us posted on the build process. JR

Looks like you're going to end up with a great car. Love those second gens. Is it a rolling chassis as it sits currently?

yes it is... but i'll have a front clip installed in a few months.. hopefully i will be able to make my purchases there in USA then have the parts shipped here. roughly my whole front end will come from there, brand new..

I was out there in 1985 and 86. Ill be really honest, I fell in love with the place. The people, the food, the way of life.. Im retired now at 43 (pushin 44) with a solid pension and if it werent for the wife and kids (which I love) I would honestly think about taking my butt back. The way of life there suits me. And no, not the mis-conception of it being a complete party. I just love the folks (and the FOOD!!) and the more laid back atmosphere compared to where Im at now....

The PIs will always hold a special part in my heart... Damm!! Missing it already.... JR
