Welcome to CRG and congrats.  Looks very nice. 

Would you be so kind to elaborate a little on your resto?  Like...How long have you owned, any history, time its taken to complete or near complete, pics before or during (can't get enough pics) :)

Thanks
Darrell

Thank you. I bought the car in August when the paint and body work was completed. The restoration started about a year ago. The car was found about 12 years ago in a barn in NY and sat in my friend's shop since then.  It was a drag car and the odometer and title show 27k miles.  It is an X77 D80 dusk blue Z with standard black interior. It has the original rear 3.73 positraction) and numbers matching engine. Missing the original tranny so I am putting in an M22 from an early 70s Camaro.

Not much rust but GM quarters were installed and the floor was replaced since the car was tubbed for racing. Fenders and the rest of the metal is original. I am trying to track down pictures before restoration started.

I am not a wrench turner...yet, but love muscle cars (I had a 69 Mach 1 in high school). I am doing my best to restore it back to original condition.
