      I saw that too, Eric. Kyle must be out there in Iowa, hangin' out with a bunch of Chevy owners. LOL

        Kyle you have a point

        My father in law has one on his 69 Mach 1 that he uses weekly to pull his custom painted motorcycle trailer. Plus how else are you going to tow your buddy home?

              Fuel tank has been modified with in tank pump and installed in car. Engine and transmission is back in the car, and new wheels and tires are installed. Front end seems to be sitting a little higher than I would like. I might end up cutting the coils to bring the front down and inch or so. Air ride would be nice, but the price is too rich for me.

                Kyle looking good. Did you swap out the taillights back to the originals? Are they Kragar rims?

                  Taillights are some originals that I found in New York. The wheels are Ridler Wheels. 18x8 with 235/40r18 up front and 18x9.5 with 275/40r18 in the back. With that size of tire in the back, it really makes the rear tires look to far forward in the wheel opening. Looking at moving the rear axle back an inch or so to center it up.

                          They are LED lights with new housings. Direct replacement of the old bulb. Someday I will get everything powered up and get them lit up in the car.

                            Grey birds are so good looking to me. I'm tempted to repaint mine that color when I get to that point. Simply beautiful!

                              Very nice look to the car.

                              Those were interesting taillights, but the originals are better. Keep the pics coming..

                              What kind of fuel injection setup are you using?

                              Thanks, Mike

                                This is just my opinion / observation but why did you leave the ' white ' rad section natural ? that is all I see with the grille in place .
