I would think you of all people would understand when a person actually has to conduct legal business in order to keep food on the table. Not saying Chris is living paycheck to paycheck, but hey, at least it isn't foreign, right!

Well, that's one way of putting food on the table.  All you'll have to do is put the rice wagon on the rotis and flip.

Hey, we have a 70 No-va... so I LIKE that car!  Looks great in
red!  Ours (it's Josh's now) is in the original Starlight (navy)
blue metallic. Been in the family since bought new right here in
Bingo, so lots and lots of rivited-in floor patches.  It looks great Chris! 

And I won't even mention our 6 Saabs. (ducks and runs) ....  :-)

Well just about got one more done and another to start on. 70 'cuda almost done, just needs final polishing and clean up.  Next up is a 71 Challemger T/A. Kinda rough but doable. Here's pictures of both.

As difficult as it is to even find the E bodies at a reasonable price these days, you have quite a bit to work with this time. Nice job on the blue one by the way.

That will be one nice car! So as a reference (reality check?).. ballpark... what does a complete body strip and repaint on something like that blue E body run these days?   At least it needed fairly minimal body work to start with compared to a NY car. 

I just contracted to have a complete desert rust-free R fender & 1/4 for my '58 cut out and shipped  to NY. That will run about a grand. Then I've got to find the right local shop to graft it in, because it's beyond my abilities to line it up precisely enough. Have a guy in mind but it won't happen until the 70 'vert is sold. Once the metal work is done I'll prime that fender and drive the car as-is for awhile until I can afford paint work. I won't do that either, not good enough.
