I see a lot of late model GM pick up buckets in street rods too because they have the integral shoulder belt that so many have come to need to feel safe. Personally, I can't stand having a strap across my chest the whole time I drive and would never consider adding one to a car that didn't have it originally. I put the chest strap behind the seat back in my dd. Just more government intrusion on my right to chose my safety level for myself..

tech69 back for a little polishing and waxing to get it ready for a local show in Lincoln. Pretty nice for a daily driver.

MARTINSR Even though I am not a rice rocket guy I miss a shop that use to be a few doors down that did hot rod late models, saw a lot of WILD Vettes, Porches, BMW as well. Holy crap those dudes were spending a TON of money!

tech69 the only thing I'd change is the bucket seats. I just don't think they go with the style and era but in any case those guys do a heck of a job on the interior and everything else. Always a pleasure hearing them rip up and down the block in these cars.
