Got intercooler, ac condenser ( because "street car"), catch can radiator and seat mounts done. Radiator mounts were hard to make look really sano since there isn't much room up there behind the grill tout the intercooler.

That's a possibility. I do have plans for a hidden receiver hitch so I can pull a trailer with spare parts and tires

Hey Mr. KTM
After seeing what you're doing, I just didn't know what to say!

Anyway, love what you're doing (nods head and smiles knowingly). Will you be able to tie the old Gal to the floor and smoke her meats?

Hey Mr. KTM,
That's the spirit! Some of the guys here take everything too seriously. It's refreshing to have someone come along with some "cultcha"!

Take care now, you heah?

No it belongs to a buddy of mine. His great grandfather bought it brand new. And yes. Lots and lots and lots of fab work. The only part of the original car is about 4 feet of frame on each side under the rockers, the sheet metal and glass. Everything else is new parts
