The driver's door is almost ready for final block sand and paint.

Tonight we went to the local Friday night spot, Biff Buzby's Burgers. It was one of the first car cruise places we found when we got to Texas. The only problem is that it is getting into summer and the temps are climbing. It was 86 degrees at 8:45pm. I am still not used to the heat. Not looking forward to 100 by wednesday.

Man oh man Brian, you have enough projects to keep busy for years! Is the new one rust-free?

No sir, but very solid. The worst is around the rear window, and it needs a deck lid. Floors are 99.9% rust free. Very complete car, 307/powerglide, ps & ac. Atlanta built car, butternut yellow.

Bought it to flip, but if I can't get what I want... it stays.

My first Chevelle was a 307, powerglide , 68 Malibu. I put a 350/4 speed in it right away. After getting way too many tickets, close to losing my drivers license, I sold it to my brother and bought a 72 Ford econoline van. The van was my first brand new vehicle.

Tony, I have some 350s laying around and a rebuilt M20.

Flash, it's a s****y green now. But the door jambs and underside of the deck lid are the original color.
