    Thanks guys, I found that car behind an old shed with a tree growing through the engine compartment in '93. I've done all of the work with the exception of the glass, took me ten years to git er done.

    Thanks again.

    Starting all over.

    Here's the recent condition of the 40 Olds. I was coming home from a cruise in one night and a deer jumped out in front of me.

    Still searching for another grille. I'll have to get some more pics of the suspension and such, I had a hard drive crash some time back and hadn't done a recent backup and you know the rest, my bad.

    The front suspesion is a 70 camaro subframe and the rear suspension is stock coil spring with trailing arms.
