He is not kidding. In 1975 the first Honda GoldWings were offered in yellow. The local bees all thought they were big flowers......Not good.

To the non-layman, we wonder what type of fuel injection that is.

slowly, been sick since 2010 and that pushed me to get back working on it. it sat from 2004 till 2010 untouched.
so, after being forced to sell my pride (70 chevelle) and a ton of other stuff. I figured doing stuff for myself was in order..
been slow going. will get it done(well they are never DONE.
and run the 20th anv. powertour, unless I'm dead or on a hospital bed.

the rear I want to add full lenth track bar with wedge agjustment for loudon track days and iroc sway bar, move the shock mounts so the rear shocks are straight up and down(better control)
front for now will be lower spindles and a few other things..
already swapped in a 86 3/4 ton sway bar

the build is on here..
My 1971 Chevy C-10 "Infinite Dreams"

While we are voting I vote for firewall being body color. Whether or not you do the inner fenders body color or not I think a clean detailed firewall painted to match the body just has a quality look.

Only one vote is important though. Yours. What do you like?
