    I had it transported by an enclosed exotic car carrier :) :) :)

    Kinda off-topic, but the today was the maiden voyage for the blue '68! A bunch of laps around the parking lot -- need to get it aligned before hitting the open road. It looks absolutely wicked from the rear.

    That is freaking sweet! I gotta say, the Fastback, IMO, even in plain jane guise looks magnificent

    Looks really sweet, love the stance! Just curious, why didn't you go with the GT rear valance?

    Simple -- the customers are the original owners of the car and this is how it was back in the day!

    The rest of the stripes & exterior trim are on so it's done from the outside! Just a few more details on the interior, and a custom top boot to fit with the rollbar.

    You've sent the car to Ohio, I recognize that place. I'll bet there is a photo of me standing next to my car in the files there somewhere.

    Well, here it is...finally done! Custom interior quarter panels finished off the interior. They're upholstered to match the rest of the interior.

    Yep. Don't know specifics yet but it's certainly in the works. It actually looks like the blue '68 will get shot first!
