    This sure looks and sounds like the car that was put together by a board member in CA.

    I think I may have some pics of the car prior to the re creation. It's a nice solid car.

    If it is......................I have all of the original side moldings , side mirror, power bucket seat track in my garage.

    Sorry guys, here are the pictures. Also, those flat spots went away with a new 750 cfm carb and some tuning.

    Can you post a trunk picture? Also do you know if the rear qtr panels have been replaced? Can you show pics of the new exhaust? What was the original color on the car? Does the car have a tachometer? How did you address the Rev limiter? What type of oil pressure does the motor have? What Temps does it run in summer heat? Does heater work?

    You an email me the pics if you wish....... Staged2@sbclobal.net
