Matching Numbers Frame On Restoration — Very expensive build as this car needed a lot more than I bargained for. Engine rebuilt, transmission rebuilt, front and rear suspensions rebuilt, all body mounts, etc. Interior totally gutted and redone. Body work straightened out (panels fit real nice). Base coat clear coat paint in original color.

Pros: Rust free car out of Arizona, originating in Idaho. Brought to Michigan in 2000? by previous owner. Sat under tarp in pole barn for 10 years.

Cons: Will always be an old car with needs...

Humble Beginnings — Performance has never been a major issue. It was slow, brakes and all other mechanicals were bad and in need of replacement from the points/plug distributor, intake, carb, heads, exhaust manifolds leaked, freeze-out plugs leaked, oil leaked, trans leaked, body was rusted, floor-boards were bad, this was an unsafe vehicle. Work is now in progress to replace and repair those items that make it a safe, well working moving vehicle. It will be a very fun vehicle to drive.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: The car came with a cracked block, which made the price affordable and gave me the opportunity to learn about carb. combustion engines.  I always liked the body style and the convertable top  made it very sexy.

Cons: I started with nothing, including knowledge about engines.  I was able to pull the motor, have it tanked, magna-fluxed and the heads re-done; valves, stems, seats etc... This car was my door to a mechanical education.

This Was My Dream Car Growing Up — Some would see this as a bucket of rust, a symbol of a era, or just plain cool. This is my favorite car design of all time, its not that fast, it handles like a boat, but it looks great.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: That it's so awesome

Cons: fuel economy

.. — Like overal performance for a all stock 40 year old car. Dislike no feel/responce in steering. This car is museum inspected. This is good in Finlans becaus you can get a insurance that have very small costs. Only bad thing is that you cant use the car for mor than 30 days/year. But you can chose the days as you want and don't have to tell anybody when you use it. It's like a 'gentlemens contract'.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Like overal performance for a all stock 40 year old car.

Cons: Dislike no feel/responce in steering.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fast - sexy & loads of fun

Cons: how can there be any negatives - other than the fact I don't still have it!

B E A U T I F U L — You may want to look good in a car but in my eyes all you need is the sound and you cant beat a V8 for sound quality because it just rumbles, slowly ticking over waiting to eat you up with sound.

Pros: the sound of the engine

Cons: its built by americans

Super Sexy — Better then sex and gives me chills all the way up to my hair! Who doesn't love hearing that 4 barrel open? Heavy on the front end of coarse.... Wish I could get the interior finished and looking sweet. Next toy will be a 63 corvett I think. Gotta love it.

Pros: Its a screamer

Cons: Still a work in progress
