    Point taken that it would be a very costly mod. I've had this car since I was 15 and would never sell it. So, given the fact I love the look of these cars, I've always wanted it to be a tricked out driver; I really want to drive it every day. Resale is of absolutely no concern. Originality is not a concern of mine either; although I love the cars and respect them, my car is a 65 C code coupe that has been left for dead in the past, and the only original sheetmetal on it is the roof and doors.

    I guess my point is that I accepted around 15 years ago the fact that I was putting more money in this car than it would ever be worth. I have around 25K in it now, although I will admit that a good deal of those expenses were associated with redoing things, which, in essence, is the reason for this post. I'm not sure what I'll do this time around on the car, and, accordingly, I'm still in the brainstorming stage of its next build. But, with an up and coming career now to fund things down the road, I know one thing; this time I want to know my absolute, ultimate goals for the car, and I really don't care what it costs. As I said before, I accepted the fact that this is a money pit hobby almost half of my life ago. Strangely, however, that realization did nothing to affect my zeal for the hobby except to make me dream for more money to reach my goals. :nice: :D

    Sounds as though you and I are very similar in a lot of ways. Should be a lot of fun going forward with this project! :nice:

    I'm looking forward to pics and descriptions as your project/car progresses. :)
