The car was in pretty good shape when I bought it:
But every panel that had 1 pin hole was replaced. Making the car TOTALLY STEEL (NO BONDO) and TOTALLY RUST FREE.

These pics are before I tore the thing totally down, put on the rotisserie and went ground up with all new sheetmetal that needed it.

Why buy such a rare car and restomod it?

Its all about what you want. Me being of younger generation I prefer to restomod/customize. I also see a trend of older generation folk wanting more creature comforts of today's technology. For me i love how far today's automotive technology has come but there's nothing body style lines wise that I like. At some point we realize we only live once and if you have a vision/dream and set a goal I say go for it. Even if its a 70 gt500.
At heart we are all car enthusiast and respect what individuals want out of life and their cars. Maybe someone wants to restore a Yugo..why?? Because he can!

These cars won't last indefinitely so lets enjoy them while they are around for us to enjoy.

LOL! I have all the originals I can handle. I dont like praying everytime I take one to a car show. I want a reliable ride that is old enough to enter into a classic car show but know Ill get home.
I have a 63 split window vette, all original and a 60 vette all original. Im afraid to drive them much more than an hour away from the house.
I am taking offers on the drive train though. I have a $12,000 offer from everything other than the rear. Includes all accessories, tranny, HO engine, all complete. Hurts shifter, etc. If you really want it, its yours for $12,001. Wink
