Wow, outstanding work Clifford! You really nailed the look. I would never have imagined that it was a 30 year old build.  I think those old Gal's look mean as well. Congrats!

Super clean looking build, Cliff and it doesn't look like it's got that much age on it.  Seeing it brings back memories of when I was in Jr high school and some of the seniors were driving those old '64s.  Thanks for sharing!

Cool!  I remember the good ole days before the Internet and instant research.  If you needed info or pictures you had to rely on going through your magazine and book collection.  Sometimes for a long while if you didn't know exactly where to look.  Then you could phone a friend, or wait until your club meeting to ask questions.  Someone would say they thought they had a picture or two and would bring them to the next meeting.  A month later you saw them at the meeting and they forgot! 

 

Of course as soon as you finished it using some assumptions, the first person who saw it would jump all over the discrepancies (although they didn't speak up when you asked earlier!)

 

Man we are so spoiled today!  :)

If I ever build one I want it to look like that.  Now to have it look like that in 30 yrs how fantastic do I have to make it now?  You did a very nice job and it's withstanding the test of time. Kudos
