  27. Excellent job. I like the look a lot, especially the rear fenders. You captured a great look, definitely not a cookie cutter car. Keep us posted and good luck with the next part of the project.

    I had a bad coil and a few vacuum leaks the coil was the main problem.
    I made some baffels to tone it down a little and took the wife for a ride I think shes gonna wake the neighbors. lmao

    Very nice, I really like what you've done, and I just thought fenders were for trailers.
