Cold start in 34F. Started right up.

It'* a runner and a driver. It doesn't stop very well, but I really haven't dove into the brakes yet, but it stops enough on its own to drive around the property a bit.

Not exactly sure how to put fender skirts on, but I gave it a go.



oh, and I am pretty sure I can store the GTP in the trunk of the T'bird for the winter since it is so huge.lol

I have looked into upgrading the brakes, and I am pretty much screwed on that. Nothing really bolts in exactly. So it looks like I will be rebuilding or replacing just about every part. The fronts should be easy because they are disk brakes, but I have messing with drums.

Those wheel blocks are pieces of concrete I pulled out of all that dirty I moved. Figured it would do the job.lol

Not sure if I can trust this hill on a steep incline. I was reading these cars like to move from Park to N all on their own.
