thanks for the compliment.....i really do miss it....i mean whenever i see it i have mixed emotions, it makes me smile to remember all the good times i had but them almost makes me cry when i think about it being gone. it truly was a beautiful car & ridiculously fast. mild build 73 455, th400 & 3.90 gears. 

i was too young to appreciate it fully & didnt realize what it was untill a couple years after it was gone. (hence going to the junkyard where it was to buy it back) but at least now i can appreciate what i have & one day will have a clone of it if i can find a good 78 project with carmine interior to paint silver. like i said i still have the 455 motor that it had & the rims & a few other items from it...just waiting for a host car to bring them back to life....

anybody got a solid 78 t/a they wanna send to a good home????
