No idea what you have, but I really don't like it when someone takes something like an original LS6 Chevelle SS and does the restomod shite.

Get a dime a dozen 70 Chevelle to do that to.

Hey man, the C8 tour came through and got to take a look. It's definitely a radical departure from the what we are used to.

Or sell your museum piece musclecar to someone that appreciates it then make a clone that no one other than you will know and update it all you want.

They're the same damn bodies.

Years ago in the 80's some "Pro Street" hero chopped up a mint 63 fuelie split window because he wanted to start with something "nice". Complete waste and that car is gone forever.

Haven't seen one in person yet, looking forward to it.

Early builds will hopefully be fine, they've had enough time to get it right.

A buddy of mine built a truck exactly like that 30 years ago with a 396. Same color. Frankly, could be the same truck.

There was actually a kit offered where you could cut the center spine section out and install a 1 piece window. Talk about a bad decision years later.

I more talking about driver-quality type cars.

Hopefully no one "updates" a big-tank Vette or COPO Camaro.

Didn't care too much for the rear. Not just the lights, just too much styling curves. The engineer on hand said it was a comment he heard a lot.

My dad had a 63 and says you couldn't see shite out the back.

Looked nice though.

The one I wish he would have kept was the Marlboro Red '67 427/435 4 speed convertible with factory pipes. Have a picture of it in the snow with a snowmobile trailer hitched to it. Took his oval sled to the races with it.

Sold my '70 442 W30 as I really didn't care to drive it anymore.

eta-The repop bias ply Wide Ovals certainly didn't help.

Will pick up a Cutlass S post to stuff an LS in with modern suspension one of these days.

He's absolutely right. There is a guy in our group with one and the rear view mirror is worthless.

LoL, My 69 had a trailer hitch included with the spare parts that came with it. I gave it away as I wasn't brave enough to install and tow anything with it.

Looks like if you're buying Tuesday is the day.

And if selling you don't want your junk scheduled for Tuesday.

If that firetruck was painted purple an LSU fan would pay about twice as much.

Great tailgate vehicle.


Surprised the Maserati made it across the block.
