65 on the way to the shop

Well after an EXTENSIVE build ,frame off replacing EVERYTHING and then some, almost 5 years, I delivered my car to my buddies shop for final tuning, suspension set up and alignment, couple electrical gremlins etc. I can hardly believe I will be driving this car shortly. I almost caused 2 accidents with people rubber-necking and got a ton of thumbs up along the way.

Ride height is being addressed-couldn't get it on the trailer without scraping the x pipe, going up about 2 inches in the back and 1 -1 1/2 in the front- the coils are all the way down in the front now so we just have to dial them up a bit,rear spacers are on the way

Looks real nice Crusty. Personally I think a little lift will make it look even nicer! Now we are just waiting for the burnout pics!!!!!!!! Eric

What a gorgeous car. I think you did it in very good taste. You'd think everything was "normal"(stock)until you start looking at all the details. And there are a ton of 'em! A sharp and classy ride, for sure. Enjoy it.......you've certainly earned it!!

This is the reason why I decided on muscle cars in the first place! Unbelievable! Congrats on the build, she sure is a beauty!

Thanks guys, I know compliments like those are not given out lightly. Hopefully I will inspire someone else to jump in and just do it. Yes it takes time,yes its hard work but thats the cost of building something nice. I agree its gonna look better raised up a bit( already had it up on the jacks) and there will be plenty of burnout pics
