Thought if anyone, you guys would get a kick out of this photo. The photo is from back in the early 70's and that would be my father and his car. Keystones and spring spacers for the win! Delux interior automatic with ac and power windows.

Its pretty wild to think I now own almost the identical same optioned car he once had and was probably rolling on the same streets as his since my car lived its whole life in Minnesota as well.

Very cool. Keystones were very popular with the Mopar guys in my area, still a nice rim. Aluminum slots were also fairly popular, and of course, the old standby Cragars.

Jacking the car up in the rear was a fad in the 70's so you could stuff those N-50 "steam rollers" under your car. Some just went with the rear while others cranked up the front a few inches to give it an aggressive stance.

Neighbor down our street had a wicked looking '68 Nova SS that was British racing green, white vinyl top, ass end cranked up with the N-50's hanging out the wheel wells on aluminum slots, very built 283 with 2 x 4 tunnel ram, M-22 4-speed, and the "bread box" hood scoop over the carbs sticking through the hood. The image of that car rolling past our house as a kid in high school is burned in my brain forever.

Front end is built with tubular control arms, and Proforged taller upper and taller lower ball joints. Not pictured I went with a Jeep Cherokee steering box upgrade from the stock box.

Front brakes are Wilwood's 11 inch rotor dual piston caliper kit.

Gotta have one guy supervising. It helps if he doesn't get distracted by birds though. Good job on the resto!

When the only tool in your toolbox is a hammer, you tend to see every problem as a nail.
