Wow!!!
You have a spectacular, well thought out rod. Kudos!
I love what you've done so far, and it sounds like what you have planned will make it even MORE righteous!!!

Man, I am super excited about winning this! Thanks so much for all of the nice compliments! I have spent a lot of time, money and thought on exactly what I wanted to put together and so far I am really pleased with the results. Of course there’s always more things that you want to do when building a car and there’s definitely a few more things I want to add to this one… With time…
Very, very clean car! Everything goes together like it came from the factory. Love the shaker hood & hood tach. Gotta be the only g-body in the world with a hood tach.
Nicely done & congratulations!

Thanks! Good luck on your ‘78!
My paint is original except for the hood and the bumper fillers.
The wheels are Year One 17 inch replicas. Nitto 245/45r17 on 9 inch wide wheels 5inch backspace for fronts. Rears were Nitto drag radials 315/35 r17 on 10.5 inch wide wheels 5 3/4 inch back spacing. The back wheels were a one off custom made to fit but had a bad balance issue plus they rubbed. so I went to Year One wheels on the back also, 275/40 r17 for the back on 9 inch wide rims. Fits great!
