I had to move the bird.
« on: April 07, 2010, 01:39:04 PM »
I moved my 77 today to the house.  :P   now maybe I will work on it  ::)   
I need the room in my shop for the semi.   I put 15k of insurance on the GTA and parked it by the road with a for sale sign in it. 
Now all I need is someone to hit it  8)
I guess I will put the 79 outside when I work on the 77. or park it in my shop over weekends I work on it.
here is a few pics.

I had it strapped on this basket for the drive over

first I had to bring over a forklift. then go get the car.

Looks like you have a great shop to work on your car.  Sad for the GTA but you new TA will make up for it when she is complete.

There is always room for another Firebird! Every one of those are/will be nice cars. I just really like that white and gold color scheme. I think it looks really sharp!
