    Awesome, first time I recall seeing one of these pop up on the board. And a favorite of mine ever since I watched American Graffiti as a kid. Would have loved to have seen the build progress on this one. Welcome to the board.

    Thank you! I’m perhaps better with the tools etc than this computer stuff but I will try to post more pictures from my car ! My intention was to build a car with the classic looks but handling like a modern car...it is a rotisserie build with frame off and everything painted and fixed! Disc brakes all around and a accuair air ride with level control and multi adjustable shocks! I’ve used to my knowledge the best aftermarket bits and pieces!

    Why not use the original 348 or 409? Probably because you couldn't find parts LOL. Very nice car by the way!
