I'll see how this summer goes, work wise. if I have the funds to start on it. I saw the new 17x9's the other day. nice wheel. I may but them on it, tub it a little, bring the tiers in a bit. and drop the car on the ground. putting the tiers up in the quarters and fenders about 3 or 4 inches.  I hope the car will set at 4 feet off the ground.

Looking really good! :D :D

But I'll have to admit that I (personally) would sleep better at night if I knew you were going out tomorrow and getting a set of heavy duty jack stands to replace the stacked up wooden blocks you're using.  A friend of mine nearly lost an arm when a bottle jack rolled off a wooden block and trapped him underneath the vehicle he was servicing.  Had he been a few inches to the right he'd have died from crushing trauma.  Your setup there kind of scares me looking at it over the Internet. :o

yes I agree with you on the wood. I didn't really see how bad it was until I looked at the pics. I will fix it tomorrow.  I just ordered my exhaust system today from pipes. and headmen headers from Jegs. motor is about 3 week from being done. just about done blocking the car for paint. B/W 4 speed is getting new bushings and clutch.

Need am/fm  8 track for my 78.  I think the radio you have in your car was for the s/e models no?  I can see the gold trim on the tape door.  Looks like the unit is in very good shape.
