    Hey guys, joined a while ago and didnt have any pics so i have just been trolling around the forums for quite some time. Well, i finally got a few pics up and online; if you guys want any specific pics or info on the car, let me know. A quick recap...its a 77 with the the original 250 swapped out for a 302 that was built by a local performance shop. I am running a manual valve body C4, and an 8 inch rear with 3.80's and a detroit locker. I am hoping to get a start on body work this fall, but im still in college, and time and money seem to be a novelty at this point. The body isnt in bad shape but the pics dont do it justice...it looks better in the pics than in person. Any comments and or advice is welcome, thanks.[​IMG]

    Neither, I inherited it from a lady (you could call her a surrogate grandmother to my family) that lived next door to my grandparents. When i was a little kid i would would wash and wax it for her. Her last few years she wasnt able to drive, so i would get it out and drive her around now and then. I fell in love with the car, and she ended up giving it to me in her will. Ive had it since december of '99.
