History
Bought used in September 2010 and started restoration / rebuild / modifications in 2011. This car was basically a do over from bumper to bumper. Everything and I mean everything was removed, cleaned, painted and upgraded, reapired, or replaced as needed. So far over a year and a half of spare time in this car.
