LOL yes Mike....... its got to be legal for the show im attending.

I set myself a goal, its an American car rally, we plan on staying for 4 days. I just couldnt turn up in anything else but a Firebird, regardless of what it looks like.

It would be like warm beer, a hangover without drinking or missing a Cup of tea in the morning, its just not acceptable to me.

So cool man. I am getting goose bumps watching this thing come together. Some custom designer shop needs to hire you and pay you some big bucks even if it is to just pick your brain. Its so easy to look at an all original car and build a duplicate because the information is already out there. Its another thing to customize a car all in your head and make it work for real and you are doing it all on gravel. WTH We need some music.

oh yeah and seriously.  Those door handles look freaking sweet. The paint kinda hid them for a sec when I was first looking at it. Awesome.
