After my car was hit by someone who was talking on the phone and not watching where they were going the car was hit. Here are the rebuild pics and I thought it was time for an upgrade with 1969 L88 racing flares, 1968 racing louvers and upgrade some other body parts.

Let the Saga contine... I moved to St. Louis Missouri in October 2008...

And now the most current pictures.....February 2009

 

So now Lets go to March 1st 2009... i had a simple oil leak somewhere in the front end... it was so dirty i couldn't tell exactly where it was coming from so i started digging into the situation and one day later i am pulling the engine and transmission again.... not only to fix the problem correctly but also there is so much dust and dirt from the rebuild process and the polishing of the paint i wanted to yank the engine and have the whole car steam cleaned and the engine polished again. So Let the SAGA continue...

 

More pics to come soon....

 

UPDATE 03/05/2008....

The Clutch Disc was pretty worn from driving the steep San Francisco streets the past couple years so i had to send off the whole assembly back to the manufacture for a rebuild...It's better than paying the $900 for a new one. They say it will take no more than a couple weeks so with shipping that is like 3 weeks out. My goal is to get this back on the road by the end of March.
