Beautiful Cars Grady! I just realized at MCACN yesterday that I have a couple pictures of your blue COPO Chevelle that I took at Super Chevy Sunday show in Indy back in 1987! It was my first big car show and I think I took pics of every solid lifter car at the show. Wasn't it sitting next to a restored COPO Chevelle that was almost identical to yours?

Can't wait to see what pictures are added from Bruce and yourselves.

Was great to meet another sYc brother and spend a little time together Graeme.

More. All the metal, less the GM NOS quarters, is AMD metal. Fit was VG with only a couple minor tweaks. Also take a look at the rear frame horizontal member. The original was distorted from a minor hit in the back at some time, it could have been saved but for 123 bux the AMD replacement was awesome. All the AMD metal was full gauge like OEM. Trunk drop off extensions as well.
Phil Woj supplied the left tail light housing and it just happened to be from a Garnet red car, the right is the original to the car.
Along the way Phil helped out a bunch with parts and advice with this build, it kept the Camaro guy from screwing up to much.....
