My 68 recently was in Muscle Car Review
« on: December 10, 2016, 05:39:31 AM »
About an issue or two ago. Cover had the class of 71 (with the plum crazy 71 cuda), I saw my 68 made the readers rides section of the magazine. I wrote in what feels like forever ago. I was really surprised to see in print. First big publication, I have ever had printed on one of my cars. My grandfather has had some magazine articles done with his rods and customs.

Congrats! A real source of pride for sure. I am sure there is some salvage yard publication dying to make my car a 'poster child' ,'cover car'lol.

CamaroBoy...

you probably know this already, but I just want to say that your grandfather was/is VERY GRAND...  with one action, inspiring you in at least two different ways (in cars and school).. :)

Oh I do everyday. Still thankful we both can do projects together and do a lot of car shows together. Our latest one is the most detailed one we have done yet, although not by much over our last project.

Shhhh.  We don't want too many people knowing about these L30/M20s.  Before you know it, people will be faking them like SS & Z28 cars.  ;)
