Here is a cool piece of history that came with the car. Most of the NOS parts that came with the car were purchased from Yenko

well like I said before, I'm probably the worst thread updater of all time, but the car is done (or as done as they ever can be). I spent the end of June and beginning of July putting the interior together and then all of the original glass back in the car.

I ended up buying repop bumpers for the car, because the chrome shop was farting around and I didnt have my originals back. well i just got a call yesterday my originals are finally done- after almost 40 weeks!

drove it about 20 miles so far, runs great no issues. car gets lots of attention everywhere i have taken it in those few miles. took my dad and I just under 2 years to get this done, and that included me painting my GTO during that time.

You might not consider yourself good at thread updating, but I guarantee you have way more ambition than I do! The car looks great, congratulations
