Your Vette is absolutely beautiful, and does stand out from the crowd with that hood.

How long until the Mustang is fully finished?
We are going to be ordering the wheels and tires next week also the engine pullys. My husband thinks in about 6 months it will be ready to roll. We have a superb interior guy who just does an amazing job, problem is he is extremely busy and it that may hold us up a bit.

Muscle Cars

I am the reverse. I own a bunch of Ferraris and Lamborghinis and just started to collect muscle cars. I currently have two cars under major restoration; 1956 Chevrolet Corvette and a 1969 Chevelle 396SS. The Chevelle has been at the shop for over a year and the Corvette has been at the shop for six months. The guy that is restoring the Chevelle is also restorning one of my Countachs, which is a two year project so far. I think if these body guys turn these cars around where it looks perfect, the time and money will well be worth it. I told both body shops that price and time is not a factor. Well they keep on asking for money but I am getting frustrated on the time they are taking. I am glad to meet someone else who is restoring a muscle car. I would appreciate the pictures of your Mustang as you proceed with the work. The paint seems brand new, has the car been painted?

This is a ground up restomod so everything is new including all the fenders/hood, paint ect. We just got the wheels on a few days ago and the pully system on. Sure would be nice to have a garage full of Lambos and Ferraris to start but I'll take what I can get. Here are some pictures of the pullys and wheels.

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That is ABSOLUTELY gorgeous. You might not want to drive it since it looks so perfect. Absolutely awesome. It is an original 1968 right? I have seen some replicas that are morphodites, parts from different brands of manufactures and some even had a Hemi engine on it. I really appreciate the pictures. I do not mind posting pictures of my vehicles but do not know how. I can email it and you can post it if you are curious of any cars I might have in my collection. I have a 12 car garage in my main residence but since I am a pack rat, I needed more space so I installed a bunch of lifts. You can do that also, even if you have low ceilings. They can custom adjust your garage tracks. I had to have that done after I smashed the windshield on my Diablo 6.0 when it was on the top of the lift. That was a $5K OUCH!!!!!!

I would love to see some pics of your collection. I might say WOW as well to your 12 car garage (must be nice!) The "Eleanor" as they call em is a movie car from "Gone in 60 seconds" the 2000 version with Nicolas Cage. It is not a REAL 68 Shelby GT500 but the movie version of it. We started with a really rusted out ratty 68 FB and stripped it completely. It is a painstakingly long tedious process, but it's almost there. I figure we started with a desirable car a fastback and only made it better. In the Mustang world the "Eleanors" don't seem to get much respect but we think it's beautiful! I'll send you an PM with my e-mail address so I can see your collection.

I have sent you bunch of cell phone pictures. I am a total computer illerate and do not know how to post pictures. Like I told you, I just got started in collecting muscle cars. The problem I have now is no space. I have multiple homes and every house I have has lifts and has some sort of exotic car parked in them. I bought the houses to utilize the garage space but was an idiot for doing that. I ordered a 75x150 steel building so that it will solve the problem. I am in the market for a 1965 Corvette Convertible, top of the line big block, side exhausts. Barn find is alright also as long as the car is complete.

Thanks for posting Supercar. I just got the blue LP 640 a few months ago and the Maranello has been shipped to my buddy, Pierro Navarro from Motorcars of Distinction (www.modexotics.com) in Palm Beach Florida for a full engine out major service as well as new headers and capristo 3. Actually I have five Ferraris there doing major work and upgrading the exhaust system including an old 1974 Ferrari Dino 246GTS. I will keep Supercar posted with new pictures if you guys and gals like to see them.
