Man, it would be cool to see that car redone like that again sometime. Even the air shocks and wide 50 series tires on Cragar S/S's and sidepipes! 70's style is coming back in fashion, car-wise anyway, hope the clothes never come back. Looking at 70's catalogs is so hilarious, what were people thinking? That's the worst dressed decade ever! I'm lucky, I was only a little tyke in the 70's so I don't really remember it!

Love the vintage car show pics. Really takes me back to when my dad would take me to shows back in the day.

It was awesome being picked up from elementary school on a rainy day in that car, the whole interior thing was for points in the shows...notice the rotary phone in the console, hey pork chop sideburns were cool then also. when I took it over and brought it up to date, I slammed it so low that We had to cut off the header flanges and weld the exhaust solid and take a tranny jack and two torches the heat the headers and move them up....so that I could make it up a driveway...running 275' in the rear and 245's on the front on 15/8 corvette rally's, those tires were tucked, had to modify the inner wheelwells. Re did the interior and painted it yellow....I am older now....it doesn't sit that low

Check out some of our other cars.....and remember think of the years that they were built
