thanks, i have spent 3years and alot of $$$$, people do not understand the feeling of firing up a old mopar and sitting in the seat and feeling all the raw power of a big block 440 ,

original price of the car 3500.00, 20,000 restoration cost, watching every full blooded american man go nuts when i drive by them, PRICELESS!

Damn Randy.... I'm in the SAME boat... paid $5,500.00 for my car and over the 20G's mark so far on the resto. I really like your car, just a question. Why did you go with a non-original color on a 68? I'm doing the exact color combo on my 70... just had to ask.

Randy, a nice tribute to your father and the car he once had. Yours is sweet, love the color combo and looking forward to the purple steel wheels. It's the same color combo I doing on my 70.....

Congrats on a super cool ride... and doing it your way!

Bryan

spot where the factory air went
