    Just in time for the weekend!

    So I told you guys before that I haven't had my 73 since May because someone pulled out in front of me and I t-boned them. Well I got a call from the body shop today, and they told me I should be able to pick her up either tomorrow or Friday, after they put the rest of the trim on the car. Well of course I couldn't wait, so the wife and I visited them over lunch and snapped some pics of the (almost complete) transformation!

    Now I've got to find a set of wheels for it. I'm thinking some 17" Torq Thrust M's. After that a new top, and then time to save up for the engine rebuild. I'm super pumped today!

      Looks good! Love the stripes and the chrome bumper!

      If you decided to get rid of those hub caps and trim rings, let me know! I could use them for my 72 coupe sleeper project!

        Looking REAL good!!

        I can see why you are "punped" up.

        I went to visit mine (the '73 Grandé) today also but it is not nearly ready. They are still saying mid-October. I am getting antsy as I want to get started on the Mach I.

              Yeah, the top is beat to hell, and it needs a black one anyway. I really want to throw a set of wheels on this thing, but I'm so damn stingy I want a deal, lol

                The bumper looks good given that those huge rubber ones are probably expensive and hard to find and frankly very ugly. Looks nice.

                  Looking good! The hub caps and trim rings are what came on my 73 originally; there really not bad looking.

                      I agree the color is very nice! Wonder if there are any other cars this color around? If there are those are some pretty lucky owners! Big Grin
