    Just brought it home today from Adams Hot Rod Shop in Calhoun, Ga.......I couldn't be more pleased with the work Chad and his guys did....started off doing the Wiring and run the Ac/Heat lines for me.......turned out getting them to do the interior, exhaust and glass also...Told him I wanted Plain and Simple that would look in Style today and 10 years from now.....It's exactly what I had in mind.....don't want something that will be dated looking in a few years....also installed and covered a Waldens Speed Shop Metal Top Insert in Hartz Top Material.....then I got to looking at one of his cars with the So-Cal Buick Disc Brake kit......had to have them to.......think I'll shut my shop down next week and put the fenders, headlights and hood on and it will be finished....been almost 3 years.....Needless to say I'm ready to drive it farther than out my shop doors....Here's a few pictures of it tonight....And YES !!!!....that is Sun Visors....I wanted them...lol...drove too many miles with my hand held in front of my face wishing I had some........ 3216.jpg 3212.jpg 3217.jpg 325.jpg 326.jpg 327.jpg 323.jpg 3211.jpg View attachment 3479295

    Ohhh soooo NICE! I really wanted visors in my sedan but didnt pull the trigger. Looking back I'm glad I did'nt use them, my seating position has me looking out of the upper part of the windshield so visors would have blocked the view. They look great though.

    I'm liking your coupe a lot, sorry to hear however that you went with the So-Cal brakes.... instead of the guy who designed the brake kit in the beginning (sold through So-Cal originally) .... and who still makes and sells them with improvements I might add....

    32 Months till I drove it out the garage door......then the Gremlins....but I've got a handle on most of them.......I thought the 32 months was kind of ironic....since it was going to be a 9-12 month build.........

    Super car for sure. The top insert is "Tits"! No big molding surrounding it.
