Thanks everybody Smile
sick car. what color is that?
It's a grayish white color....? Not really sure of the specific name.

Nice looking ride.
I'm in Warner Robins if you need something.
Thanks garomy. I will probably have to take you up on that Razz Do you work on base? My dad has a blue '68 that he zips around in on base.

Here's another from today. Merry Christmas everybody santa

I got chance to do a photo shoot with my '65 the other day. Went along HWY 49 through Byron to get these. Enjoy.

Thanks Cambur. There are some kinks to work out but it's drivable and I am happy about that. I have the rear bumper and haven't taken the time to put it back on. And there is a big rust spot on the back on the left that you can see from the pics. Hopefully one day that will be cut out and a new piece welded in...but that is on the bottom of the to-do list Razz My suspension set up is:
Front: 6" Narrowed beam 2.5 drop spindles 145/65 15" BRMs
Rear: 2 outer splines, notched plates, and 205/65 15" BRMs

The back could go down one more spline. That is for a later date tho.
