That looks a lot like my car sitting in my parents garage. I really need to go over and drive it a little bit. I really miss driving that car.

well it was in pretty sad shape when i got it. im sure i could have gotten a better deal but the price for a decent shape 70 is insane, plus my car has a mint interior so i look at it as i saved it from being crushed :) . as you can see that quarter is ready to get welded on (we did the other side already) and it needs both front fenders all this because of rust (maryland car :rolleyes: ) once that quarter is on we're pulling the body off and mounting it on a home made rotiserie to finish the under side then remount the body on a 2nd frame that i have sanded rust proofed and painted. Its also gonna have a whole nother suspention on that frame. its a big project in a small 2 car garage but ill keep ya updated on how its going :thumbup:

how much were those 17" centerlines? they look good on that car
well i got all 4 wheels and tires for $400 (used but in great condition) it needs 2 tires but they will last long enough for a burnout or 2 once i get the car finished :rock:

btw they are centerline billet fluted stars 17x9.5 though i really want 17x11's for the back

k well im tired right now so excuse any typos. this was all completed tonight in about 4 hours or so we took it the body off the frame and mounted it on a rotisery<sp?> so we can fix the body braces which in the back have pretty much rusted off (not good) but we got new ones. anyhow i know you dont are about all the detail stuff so heres some pics ........
