Congrats. This one won the Chicago Legends Tour in 2019 and went on to SEMA. Although it didn't take the final win it was one hell of a...
Lougbang, I've seen those videos, AWESOME. I'm looking for the white '64 that the '65 was made from.
Guys been looking for a old thread with no luck of a guy that has built a replica of Chrisman's '64 Comet. Anyone have pics of this or can lead me...

Didn't know you still had the Malibu Sam. Your probably right about the car being gone by the time I sold the Tempest. I should have waited on...

With the way the market is with what all that is going on in the world there seems not to be much interest in buying the Tempest. I guess at this...
