finished the fairlane, onto the wildcat!

Hey everyone,
I haven't posted much lately since i've been so busy with school and everything, but this past summer i finally got my 64 fairlane on the road. I drove it any time it wasn't raining, maybe next year i'll get some wipers on there instead of relying on rain ex for the unannounced thunderstorm lol. Also, i picked up a new project. It's a 66 wildcat convertible, my little brother is 12 and he's going to build this one with me and he'll drive it when he's 16. Right now we pulled the body off the frame, and have the motor and trans out, and the motor is stripped down waiting for a rebuild. We're either going to do a frame wrap and a 3 pump hydraulic setup, or another air ride setup but bigger and faster than in the fairlane . well here's a few pics i just wanted to post and see what everyone though of the cars! thanks a lot

Frank

Wow a family of car nuts eh? Looking very good! I remembered when you started it and it had that faded blue old paint on it will all the trim missing and pretty much no interior. Werent you gonna suicide the back doors and go with a blue/white scheme on the whole car?
Looks awesome dude

thanks for the compliments mike. yeah we've got plenty of car nuts in the family, it's getting hard to find space for all the cars around here! Yeah back when i first got it it had that old crappy blue paint, a fire took out the entire interior and the motor barely ran. I was going to suicide the back doors, but i didn't get to that this summer, it'll be a winter project if i have time with the wildcat. And i was going to paint it blue and white or orange and white, but that'll come after the suicide doors, don't want to mess up that nice new paint by cutting into the door posts .
here's a before picture

thanks junkie, that's a nice 64 you have there, it's great to see other ones on the road. Any plans for it? By the way, that's also a nice collection of rifles lined up against the side of the car in your gallery.
