It's been a long road but it has been well worth the wait. I bought the car in '76 (Junior in High School) with the Hardy kit installed. How many can say they still have their H.S. Hot Rod. Class reunions, 10 & 20 yr., they ask if I still have the car and are amazed when I say I still do have the toy. (just an older kid, now)

Color is a '64 Corvette Silver  Metallic Blue with a wide '80 Camaro Dark Metallic Blue strip on the hood and hatch. I will need to put the dash in, carpet, new Jaz Pro Stock Seats, 5 point harness and misc.

Full fiberglass Motion L88 Corvette Style Hood (4/18/02) and got it on (5/10/02). Also on hold and waiting, new windshield, doors and hatch seal. Front and rear spoiler painted too.
