    Folks for a long time I have wanted to start a progress thread. But, I started my restification before Nastyz was around. I thought I would post pics of the work I have done since 1989.

    This is my family and I. I married my wife in April, 1989 and bought "Plain Jane" in June.

    This is what Jane looked like as of last week (1-23-11)

    This is how she looked in June, '89. I was skinny and young.

    I soon started to take her apart.

    Back from the body shop. Aug. 1, 1991. I rigged up a tow bar to my '72 Pick up.

    I then built a poor man's garage out of PVC pipe and a tarp. I made It so I could slide it off to work on Jane.

    In Sept., '94 I moved into my current home. The garage Jane was in was 15min away. When ever I went to work on her I had to take all my tools and any supplies I needed. During 1995 I mounted the blower, alt., starter, and fuel tank. And other stuff!!

    While working some on the Camaro, I built a 24 x 24 Garage. Jane moved in on the 29th of July, 1996.

    I was wondering when we'd see a progress thread from you Clay. Nice looking family you got there. The car's pretty nice too. Maybe we'll park our cars together at the Super Chevy Show in Petersburg in May? Keep us posted on your progress.
