    Knowing you it will be a good driver, I can't wait to see it in person.

    Hope you have Happy Trails to Detroit.

  17. Any thing original to the car mine is stock and for now that works. A better grill or parts of a grill to fix the rot mine has bumpers if they have chrome left on them. A fenton viser
    I now that's a long shot but have to ask.

    This is what it looked like when I left home in a snow storm.

    I'm not sure about posting that, it was sooooo Streetroddy that Ryan might delete this whole thread.

    That's why it was never seen on here except for a picture of Buddy Christ on the dashboard that Rocky took.
