I had you pegged as more of a "Caddy Hack" man, Chuck. :lol:

Wow, does that hood scoop ever clash with the nose of the car, huh? :blink: Then again, what doesn't clash with the '70 nose? :D

Looking forward to seeing this one progress, Keith. ^_^

I love dem Mopars and yours is lookin' good. I looked at a 1:1 '70 Coronet R/T for sale about three years ago, but it didn't quite meet my expectations.

not all of them are painted, granted the one on this car is, but i have seen them chrome before, apparently it was part of some appearance package

I don't think that issue will ever be resolved. It's been debated over on the Moparts forum before, too, with no clear answer.

Are those aftermarket trans cooler lines I can see through the lower valence panel opening?

I definitely think you should do the flattened tires. That really adds a lot to the overall look IMHO, as silly as that may sound.
