Thanks, guys.  I do really like the looks of the Firestones with the original style gold lettering and stripes. They compliment the rest of the car very nicely. While my car used the Goodyear Bluestreaks for its first few races, it did switch over to Firestones for the later part of '67 and early '68 and that's the timeframe that I'm restoring it to.

Any plans to show it in AACA race car class, Jon? Hershey would be a good place, hint hint.

Are you going to have it at the Monterey Historics this year? I am planning on attending this year.

I will have the car at the Monterey Historics this year, just on display, not going to race it. For those coming to the track, stop in and say hello.

Awesome, congrats Jon. I know it was a long time coming. :) Hopefully you can take some pics at Monterey.

Too long coming but it is what it is.  Yes, I will post some pics from Monterey after the event.
