Just be sure that the "fun ahead" is not had by the local traffic cops controlling the old guy's urge to revert to his youth!:):):)

A very well done ride. Looks like great fun on the streets.

I like to way you did the front end. I really changes the looks of the car. For the better I must add.

Just need more pix of the interior, etc.

Very impressive. Can you show us more detail on what you did with the rear suspension?

If you look at pics #344 and #348, you can see each side of the frame was moved in 8" and boxed.If you look at pic #017 on the other "BLACK BETTY" post, you can see the rear springs are now fiberglass. You can see the polished aluminum ends of the spring.
After I get the car back from the carpet shop, I will continue to post pics of the interior.

And to think I thought the exterior looked great. That is a really well done frame and running gear.

Keep posting, PLEASE!!
