Looks good from a distance, but has the usual minor rust spots. Needs some detail work on the grill and trim.

Paint isn't original, hence the plain silver body.

Looking good, needs Rogers stripe kit

I have a '78 gt shell that will one day house my mummified body, at the center of an giant iron pyramid.

It will probably break down to dust faster than your body

Right now it looks about like this:

In a year or 2 (long term father and son project) it should look like this:

What about lime green stripe instead of the silver? doesn't sound right, but I think it could work. I'm a fan of orange too, but maybe not whole car. Anyway, I like!

My car is orange and has always been "my color". My 3 boys all want some version of orange on their cars. Next boys car will be white with orange.

Daughter had to go and mess it all up and like yellow. :lol:

That's pics of my sons car that towery took a few years ago before we started working on it. It was just moss. Washed right off with a psi washer. Car is rust free for the most part.
