    Car came out so good @Mikel50
    It’s hard to believe you did all this work rebuilding it in under a year, but it happened! This thing rips with the overhauled drivetrain and looks awesome doing it

    Thanks buddy. Thank you again for all the help, guidance and knowledge.

    Actual hands on time was just shy of 7 months.
    Time to crank out the Sedan

    I posted earlier that you have a magic wand. That was incorrect. You have an exemplary skill set. I have been familiar with this car for over 40 years and I was at Brads the day you bought it and I will tell you, never in my wildest dreams did I think it would ever look this good. I couldn't make it to the "Gathering" this year but I will be at Brads this year and I hope to see it then. Congratulations on a job well done. See you soon.

    It’s lasted 40 years and doesn’t leak a drop ... not sure how much more of a test it needs.
    Thanks for the compliment

    Nice work rebuilding your rod. I shared it with my mother who is 74 and she digs it also. As an aside, my brothers name is spelled Mikel as well.

    Thank you so much. You guys all rock !!
    I’m a new member in the Tornados CC and we’ve been doing monthly cruises in our cars.

    The coupe has been so much fun to drive ... I’ve started calling it “The HotBox” because it’s like riding in an oven on these 90° days we’ve had since spring.
    Next cruise will be up in southern Maine (Lyman/ Limerick Maine) later this month.
    If you’re in the area come out and join us.
