  18. Finally got a clearer image of Shirona, My first drivable classic. Sadly totalled in the early 90's, by a friend I let borrow her. I've never been able to replace her. 20180610_201244.jpg

    I dont get around these parts much anymore but when i do im happy to see this thread... been feeling the need to change my 65 up some. Thinking about going late 60s/early 70s era drag.

    Slight nose up stance, mix matched wheels some stewart warners, more cam, head and gears, tunnel ram etc....throwing a 5 or 6 speed in to make it more fun on the street...
