    Figured I would put this over here too. My wife and I had wanted a car to work on, and eventually go to cruise night and car shows and stuff. We both like the old muscle cars. Her dad got wind of it, and presented us with an awesome project car.

    The day it came home.

    The only rust holes I have come across.

    Some extras that I have been acquiring.

    I also have just received.

    This Rollcage.

    These frame rails and subframe connectors. I don't really need these, but they came with everything else in a trade.

    I have received a floorpan to swap out the rusty section from a member here, and hopefully I can get things turned around and begin working on this thing again.

    Looking forwards to getting after it. Still have a 30 over 350 coming for it too. Hopefully I can get it and start looking numbers up on it to see what it is, and gathering parts for it. Another thing, the car has the 2.41:1 rear end in it. I am hoping to find a posi rear. That can wait indefinitely though. So long as it is running.

    I used the jack to move some ATM parts around during a big rehab project for Bank of America and Chase. The parts weighed in at 450 pounds.

    Are these good for anything? Father in Law says they are no good for Drag Racing, Wife does not want a drag car. I think she leans more towards a stock/custom pro touring look. I can go either way, although if I go pro tour, I want to do another car for the muscle car look, and more fro straight lines.

    Good project with lots of room to work.

    Air shocks...............IMHO throw them in the garbage, they don't belong on any car, except when we were tenagers n wanted to put 60's on the back of our cars lol
