Do Firebird nest projects count?

This is the start of my Formulas new home. I started this project last November. I bought 20 acres in Southern Michigan so I could be closer to the Ohio Firebirds!! (Just kidding, Hows that Hammer!!). Electrical is complete. I will be having concrete poured as soon as things dry up here in Michigan. It is 26' x 36' x 10' high ceilings. Then comes the wall insullation & a ceiling mounted propane heater. My only stumbling block is the driveway. It is 800 plus feet long & is large rock & it will make me cry to drive my car in & out of there :'( To be continued....

Looks like a nice nesting place for your formy. Mine is on jackstands, wrapped in plastic out in the cold :-[
Light travels faster than sound. That's why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

I used to do that with my 77 Formy, but the wind got the best of me from flapping against the hi points of the car:mirrors etc...

You know, I really have come to like the black/red color combination.  I saw a 79 on craigs list that had those colors and I would have purchased it but the guy wanted $8K for a beat up T/A.  It was worth about $2K...no rust and a W72 engine.  The guy had listed it as a 403.  But black/red is really, really nice.  What engine do you have?

I HAVE THE 400. YOU DONT FIND ANYONE WHO LIKES THE BLACK & RED COMBO, INCLUDING MYSELF. IT IS ALL STOCK & MINT CONDITION, SO I DO NOT HAVE THE HEART TO CHANGE IT. MY 77 HAD BLACK ON BLACK & I MUCH PREFFERED THAT. I ALSO MISS THE DELUXE BUCKETS OVER THE STANDARD.
