Cool. I'm in Northern Jersey in Short Hills, about 20 minutes West of the Holland Tunnel.

Nice looking 71 T/A clone- interesting interior color choice, and kinda surprised to not see any rally gauges in there.

I always liked the gold cars.  The 79 nose can look funny with some colors, like it's too long.  But on the gold it seems to blend in really well.  Nice car!

the 80 copper Formy I had was the same way.  It made the nose look sleeker.

Thanks Geno.  The rally gauges for the 71 is my last project, I have all the parts.  I've never seen a 71 t/a with the dark saddle interior (other than my clone)  Something a little different.

White or blue is good on 79-81 as well.

Looks AWESOME!!!!  What size tires?

Year One's 17" x 9" Honeycomb rims along with a set of Nitto 555's, 285/40 for the rear and 255/45 for the front - I really like how they fill the wheel wells.  Thanks for the compliment too! 

A bunch of beautiful Birds in this post!!
  Why a 40 on the rear and a 45 on the front.  Isn't a 45 taller?

I thought all car guys knew this but here goes:
The numbers 40 and 45  in above tire sizes are PERCENTAGE of the tire width, which makes the 285/40 114 mm high, and the 255/45 is 114,75 mm high, a tad higher but not noticeable.
I'm not dangerous, I'm just plain ugly...

  So yes I was right, the front is taller, no need to be condescending, I guess what I don't understand is why not use the same size then on all four corners...
