Default Progress Pix of the Jinx (56K go string the tree)

Well, so far I have claybarred the frontend, yanked out the driver seat and headliner, and scrubbed the hell out of the carpet. For those that have seen and been on the inside of this, know that the interior was a cesspool on wheels

So, here are the results of some hardwork, elbow grease, and just wanting to get something done

Why does the entire car look like it was pieced together? Where did that ECC come from?

Yeah, came with the car So, I have to make lemonade out of lemons I suppose

J, it'* looks "pieced together" because it is....remember, I got this car in pretty rough shape to start with. The ECC plate came from I think an Oldsmobile, and was a custom job I wanted to try out. The shifter **** is from I think a Grand Prix and has the button on the side of the shifter, but I think I am going to go back to the T-handle. Oh yeah, and the steering column came from a 95, since the column I *did* have was all busted up at the turn siggy yoke.

Looks pretty sharp to me. I think it is coming along quite nicely.
