thanks!!! finished my 68 lemans

hi everyone my names jason and i would like to thank everyone on here for all the helpful information yall gave me.i learned alot of stuff i didnt know and still learning something new everytime i get on here. with the help i got i did everything thing my self with help from my dad when i needed it. i have been working on it sence january working on it in between work and school every chance i got, pulling all nighters many times. the total cost i spent including the car was around 4,000.and i am very happy with the way it turned out. i think i did pretty good for my first paintjob. i think im gonna re buff, im not happy with the shine. but i learned from my mistakes. im sure there are some out there that hate me for painting it lime green, but that was the choice i made and i have absolutley no regrets. anyways heres a picture of me driving it for the first time on my way to school, comments welcomed. thanks again!

Yep it looks really nice. with that car I bet you will bring over some import loving school mates to Muscle cars. Also watch out for the teachers now. Back in my day they hated hot rods and loved to kick you off school property.

So what motor plant you got?

The best thing about a slow car? You can race on the street, and not even worry about breaking the law
