I just like looking at it. One day it will be done.

This place is a refreshing oasis of tolerance for doing what you want to do with them. Not make it my way so I can rob you buying it and sell it and make a fortune off of it. Which when you get to the root of things. That is all they are doing on the other site scamming.

It isn't about the cars or the people involved. It is only about how much money they can make playing their games.
What all do you have left to do? Do you need any parts? I may have something laying around that you could use.

Yellow 69, my first Chevelle was a 68 too. Plain Jane Malibu that had a 307 powerglide when I got it. I put a hopped up 350, 4 speed in it and beat the snot out of it. I got in so much trouble with the law, I sold it to my Brother and bought a brand new 72 Ford Econoline van. Next one was pretty nice 69 SS, 325 horse, burnished brown, auto. Sold that one and built another 68.

John, I am thinking that will be a long trip for you. I understand fully about Joan not being there. Can you think of anyone that might like to ride along? Any younger guys in your neighborhood that have an interest in the older cars? Got a buddy that would like to get away for a few days?

You know ,it is very strange now days to be me ,everyone that used to like to hang around with me has found an excuse to not since Joan died .Maybe people dont know what to say or do but I can tell you it makes for a lonely time .Nobody wants to travel either .My great nephews like old cars but they are too busy with sports to think of anything else .

I appreciate the offer.

I need things I got to buy. Interior and either rebuild this 454 I got or buy a crate one. I got belt drives both big and small block alt and starters everything just about except one thing.

A drive shaft. Just the shaft would do. I got yokes.

But other than motor and interior from the dash back. Dash as you know is finished. It is basically done. I got the rear seat frame. It has the buckets in it. They are not horrible but I am going to recover them.

Like I said I am in hobbyshop prison since my wife went to college. I got one more semester and after that she be working. It will get done fairly quickly after that.

I do got a almost perfect complete set of 68 chrome left over tho. Heater core and a under the hood air unit to a 69 year I think but it is close. I bought it for mine. But got the el camino parts car and it had one. new 68 antenna but i went with the in windshield 69 type.

She does look sweet to me down there tho. Freshly waxed. I can say it is exactly what I always wanted. Colors stripes stereo all options I always dreamed of. Power everything and air. You know chevelles were always basically optionless if they were performance oriented. Which was why I sold the SS and kept the malibu parts car in the first place.

It was my dream car. I purposely picked options and chrome from any years I pleased. Just tried to make it look like it could have been a factory set up.

I been oggling her. Like a high school date when she says she got to go home while petting. So close yet so far LOL.

I am restoring that boat I got now to. Needed stringers and transom. So I am keeping busy. I am grinding out the hull at the moment. That will keep me busy till school lets out.

Once you get used to doing this stuff it is hard and boring not having some project going on all the time.

Couple pics of her. She she isn't being neglected. Gets cleaned more than any other car that never moves LOL.

Chevymaher, that is one beautiful 68. I've had only a few chevelles and love my 69, but there is no better looking rear of a car than a 68. I love the taillights on a 68, aluminum grill, 68/69 ss hood. Get that baby done and enjoy it.

That car is beautiful. You do nice work. If I had an extra engine sitting around, I'd give it to you just to see that beauty done.
