  • The SNS begins to wake from a long sleep

    After several years of being confined to the back yard shop, The Saturday Night special began to awaken a short while ago. He's gonna have to get up early in the morning and head to town with me when I go to work . Got an appoint for front end alignment in the morning. Get up you sleepy head

        It's no longer Lurking ! I woke it early and it took a trip to the alignment shop today. These earlier shots were a gradual awakening. He's once again alive !

        A Little better shot as he wakes and his unclear eyes get a little gleam in them. Bout to go to town. First time in a long time. Last shot before he faces the world.

                            Looks more aggressive than a smile. It just wants back on the road.

                            Well done, Bob

                              So, do I have it right? Is this a '53 Commander, Regal, Starlight coupe, with, shaved hood, trunk, and rear quarter emblems. Front bumper guards, Regal windshield, and beltline mouldings, removed, and replaced with, only, Deluxe windshield trim. Replaced the 232" V8, with an R1, hooked to the original T86 - E, 3 speed / OD transmission, with an adapted floor shifter. No air conditioning, no power steering, no power breaks, and no radio! Stunningly beautiful, with minimal, extra, weight, and significantly increased power! I'm sure, I'm not alone, in being Extremely envious! If I could, make just one request? Could you Please, just post one good clear photo, of the gauge cluster?

                              Thanks,
