Nope. Using a car cover in the winter is not good for the paint. You are better off with nothing.

I did drop the rebuilt 428 back into her, and put the hood back on. In the spring she will get a new set of tires and some minor body touch ups and be good to go for the summer.

Only 82,000 miles on it so far.

Not the best of pictures. Ya know how some kids just dont photograph well?

Of course, it is kinda hard to get the whole thing in the picture without standing back about 30 yards!

Of course, here is the thing that matters... Tough to read in the picture, but it says "428".

For all the ricer folk, that is a bit over 7 litres.

Yes, folks. That'* a REAL Bonneville! Gotta love it, especially since it'* still roadworthy. It could be a rustbucket, and would still impress the hell out of me.
