68 L78 Rallye Green

This car is no stranger to CRG, but I believe it deserves it's own thread in this section.  Enjoy.

This whole preservation approach is right on with me. I like to see the progress Darrell is making with this car. It has so much meaning, not only as a great specimen to acquire, but more so, a legacy to the great previous owner, his dad.

Awesome photos Darrell :)

I see four different sets of wheels (including rallys) - all very cool.

Yeah, like that goofy looking, red headed kid!  ;D

Sorry Darrell, I couldn't resist.  ;)

Seriously though, beautiful car!  You're lucky your dad kept it all those years.

Ouch..  Lol no that was funny..

Now to the interior shots..  Ill try to keep from doing before and after photos of the preservation and just stick to the finished product.
