Ugh, today at my job I worked on a 91 explorer, a 99 oldsmobile minivan, and a 97 buick century. I don't know you, but I hate you.

Both cars are at about 90 grand each now.

We've got a couple more cars lined up before we start fabbing up frames for the trophy trucks

Here are a few pics from yesterday.
We went to a snooty country club with some of our cars.

The Mach 1 is all original, with the exception of the ugly wheels. The camaro should settle a little once it's actually driven.
The 69 camaro is slammed if you didn't notice.

No I didn't notice because I didn't click on the '69's picasa page, I just looked thru the pics you posted here. That 69 looks much better, my taste. Huge wide tire all around, tucked. Perfect, assuming you'll keep it at that height when you finish it
