      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    Good one!

    It would look more like my GTO under neath. H&M frt welded to stock rails with truck arms added in back. All this is speculation however because I've never seen pictures of the cars suspension. This was standard practice for GM and Ford cars from the era.

    No the chassis in my GTO was built by Nichels but was built with a Holman Moody frt clip welded to a GM frame with long truck arm rear suspension. The cage was kind of a cross between a Nichels design and a Holman Moody design. In those years the car had to run the same springs design as the factory car used. If it had coils in the frt and leafs in the rear that's how the race car had to be.

    Those both look to be Nichels built Chrysler chassis. The stripped down one looks newer.

    Next is to stretch a Thunderbird chassis. A small notch must be made in the frame to locate the firewall the same distance forward as the chassis was stretched.

    First things first is to make the wheelwells look like the real car by adding some small flares.i also removed all the old primer.Lastly primed and modified the rear of the frt wheel opening to look like the picture.

    I bought the body awhile ago but couldn't find the old Cherry Run Decals anywhere. I just had a set of decals custom made because this is my favorite stock car ever. Let alone it is a Montego GT one of my favorite cars ever.
