Very nice. Is that the 305 or the 350? My dad had a 79 like that with the 305. It was always a nice car......I learned most of my driving skills in that beast! Only in Canada it was called the Parisienne Brougham.

Brings back lots of memories!

It'* good to see someone spend time and $$ to keep the older metal clean and alive.

I thought about putting 22'* on it but everyone says the 20s look the best, and most cars I've seen with 22'* almost look ridiculous and the ride height would rise and I personally like the low-rider feeling. However, when I, in the future, get air bag suspension installed, I might put on 22'*
