Default Dave Bonvillian Has Another Golde Top!

I just got a couple of emails with pix of Dave's ~ villian, new Golde Top acquisition! It has been a few years since we last heard from him, but here is the new one and it looks to be a beauty! He is gonna modernize it. I see it even has that unobtainian Golde Top bar across the front of the top! Here is what Dave had to say and the pix.

"Hey Ray! Long time sir. I figured I would show you what I was up to Finally found a new Golde and am doing this one right! 4-link rear, airbag suspended, bored and stroked with individual throttle bodies, etc etc. It should be perfect Hope y'all are well!

Hey everyone! Glad to be back!
It took me forever to find another Golde that was the 'right car', but the build is underway and it should be on the road by late Feb sometime.
Taking this one to the 9s :-)

I like this job because it shows, there's more than one way to skin this cat. It may not be the cheapest, it may not use 14" wheels and the pads may not be available at all auto parts stores BUT, it's a nice system that will function far better than stock.

Everyone has their own way of doing things. This example is really nice, using modern materials and methods. I love it. - Dave

We ended up going a lot bigger with the brakes :-)
And engine is almost done - Barnett High Performance built it.
Suspension is done too.
I will send some pics. It is getting close! :-)

Final color will be Ferrari's Grigio Medio. But we will wait a bit to do that for final tweaks and such.
I head to Colorado to spec the interior with Mr. Sids on Monday (black and ox blood red)

It has been quite some time since I last heard from David ~ villain. I see he has been busy. He just sent me a bunch of pix and I will post them so you can see what he has been up to with customizing his beautiful '60 Golde Top! You will also see a pic of his electronic fuel injection system...
