Default Cloning a notorious car from the past.

In high school I built a '64 Chevelle two door hard top Malibu. Apparently, I got into more trouble than I realized. I posted up a picture and was shocked at how many people remember that car.

I just bought a '64 SS to clone the original car I should have NEVER sold. This one has all the same speed parts as the first one. (which were REALLY hard to dig up) Anyway, here's the new car. It's very solid and it shouldn't take long to get looking great. Did I tell you I own a hotrod shop?







And here's what it'll look like when it's done. (minus the stripes, it's not 1990 anymore)

I'm building a 327 for it like the one I built for the first car. I'm building a Th400 and a 3.55 posi also. This car can fit the whole family, (three girls) so it should be fun to use. I plan on driving the wheels off it.

I love it when people build the car to drive. I understand that there are some cars that are so rare that to drive it would be crazy. But for people like me who don't have numbers matching, I built it to drive and it is great to hear that you are.
