    It\'s finished! (almost)

    Well here it is (http://albums.photopoint.com/j/View?u=1335667&a=9937369&p=41913160) What yer looking at is a ’91 Lincoln Contential sitting on a lifted ’78 J**p Wagoneer chassis. My brother and I have been working on it since early summer. The project actually wasn’t all that hard (when you are working out of a fully equipped garage that is), and I was amazed that 3 of 8 body mounts actually lined up. Personally I think that we should trim the rear finder wells to fit the slightly longer wheelbase, but my bro says that he wants to keep the trunk without hacking it up (his baby, his choice). All of the luxury goodies work except the digital dash (which should be finished in a few weeks) and the electronic climate control (we gotta figure out the control wiring first), but the manual HVAC work just fine. We took it out today to the 4WD club (yes it’s street legal, and we drove it) and had a ball watching all the jaws hit the dirt when folks saw it coming. It was so popular with the kids there that they actually fought to see who got to clean it up. This thing isn’t just show either; it’s locked front and rear, equipped with headers and true duals, a nice cam, an Eldebrock (sp?) intake and carb, a 6” lift, and homemade skid plates in all the critical areas. He plans on putting on 44” boggers this summer along with a much lower set of gears, and a supercharger next summer. Talk about luxury four wheelin’. Adjust the 6 way power, leather seats, crank the stereo, and watch the jaws drop! Wadda day

    There is something that is just not right about that. Maybe it's the leather seats :-) Anyway, good job.
