Your just a hard working fool. Get er done. Looks good.

I wish I had more time for it, nothing ever goes as planned. I will keep pushing until the weather stops any progress. Then it's time to do some metal work on the 69'.

Ratty Muscle Cars is having an event March 10th in Alabama. I keep thinking about thrashing on the car (the 69') and try to take it up there. I believe I have enough junk and new parts laying around to put it together.

i took the car out for a joy ride on sunday.
checked tire pressure first; fat rears are sitting at 20psi
topped of the fuel tank for more weight over the tires; but
even rolling into the throttle, the car will roll about 20foot out
then the tires start leaving black marks,then 2nd gear hits
tires are still clawing for traction, i got 11''of tread on each tire
427 runs good, but really roars with 12#'s of boost kicking in
kinda looks like this: taking off in Drive & rolling into it

We had a cold snap recently, haven't gotten much done. But, the roof skin is shaping up nicely. Bought the rest of the paint, that hurt the walllet.
