That's a really awesome car. Excellent chassis work. Done by your father-in-law's shop?

I guess your wife understood you and your obsession back then...:D


Thanks everyone. Yes I just finished it up and it has about 400 miles on it so far. My father-in-law did a lot of the work and I used my 30 days of leave a year to come home to Ca and work on it.

My wife use to have and race a 71 Nova SS that she sold to a member on this site who recently rolled it. I won't say any names, but you know who you are. :D
