This is a change from my blue fords its gonna be red with red interior(after my grandparents 67 GT with a 390 CI V8) I am going to try my best to turn it into a 67, actually my grandparents bought this kit for me for my birthday i just got it 10 days late. So Not Blue and not a shelby but still a ford.

No school today, still have power, yard only has a little water in it, thank you frankenstorm just waiting for the snow part to hit me here in ohio. Chardon is the heart of the snowbelt in ohio so we get pummeled when snow storms hit.

thanks for the offer but no thanks im fine with my modifying it keeps me occupied a little longer. actualy once i get the interior done ant the chrome done this thing will be finished. but if you have white gt stripes from the 67 that would help.
