Thanks for the compliments and kind words. Can't wait to see it in the sun getting it on the trailer tomorrow.

Still need to sort out the air cleaner, the 390 snorkels I have just don't cut it, so the dodgy open look. Will probably revert to a more stock form, but need to assess the 428PI with 390 block and a Tbird air cleaner base (that seem a tad too high)and how it all fits. The transmission is a bummer, but I do have a '69 C6 with cast iron tail shaft I may rebuild and swap in as I'd guess a rebuild is a rebuild. Need to check its servo, think it came out of a truck (think it was a "L" plant, not sure if so and what that would indicate it was originally from).

I am sure there will be a few more teething issues, the rear 1/4's are not quite right, one popped off its track, repro frame just does not seem to align right. May get OEM rechromed and hope they come out good. But overall very happy with the result... will post a few more pro pics from the show (which, unfortunately I can't got o due to a work trip dropped in my lap last week!

Wow! Beautiful car!

Couple of questions:
(1) Will you adopt me and write me into your will?
(2) Do you have any contact information for hitmen in OZ?

The world stands aside to let anyone pass who knows where he is going.

Thanks for the compliment, and that would be a pretty firm no on both counts, sorry to disappoint!

More happy snaps. Outdoor pics, flatbed to the pickup point where it got into the enclosed trailer...









Will get some proper pics from the show and at a good location once it gets home....

Show was last week. I could not attend due to biz travel.

As the car had a few issues I was not happy with we told them "do not judge". They forgot, judged it anyway, and we missed first prize out of the dozen or so Mustang/Shelby's by a whisker... if we had had a another week or two, who knows.... very happy with the result.

Richard created his masterpiece before leaving us. Hope it goes to a good home with someone that can appreciate it.
