    :rofl: at least it begins with a "C". You think they'd notice at the gate?

    The "Crew" would have me drawn and quartered!

    You'll have to detour up here on your way home to see it Mario... check out the shop and the other toys in the attic.:poke: Would be a nice little side trip.
    You're always welcome!

    I'm taking the '67 LeBaron in for paint this weekend. My guy said he'll will work on it when he gets a chance. He said it'll be ready for Carlisle!

    LOL Thanks brother! I may take you up on that...though it would be a separate trip. Gotta cannonball it to and from Carlisle this year. Time is too short.

    Washed the NYB and took it for a short drive.

    Parked the Scat Pack and I'm driving the Ram for awhile.

    OMG, what a difference driving the Ram again!!! LOL!

    Not that I’m complaining, just curious.. but this will be the third year in a row I believe for the 67, why not the NYB? 2015 or 16 was her last trip to Carlise..

    Well I stopped by the Upholstry shop yesterday to view the Hide he got to redo the seats and the 77. We took it outside for a color match, I think it’s about as close as I’m going to get.

    My real concern is whether not he’ll be able to match that pillow top appearance those seats had originally. He seems pretty confident that he will. I told him to do the bottom of the backseat first and then called me in to view it. We’ll see! He’s not the guy that I used when I had my 75 NYB front seat done. This is a new guy they came highly recommended. I didn’t use my other guy because he wasn’t able to get the seats done before Carlisle. This new guy seems very confident that he will.

    I was hoping to find a broadcast/build sheet under the seats when I pulled them out, no luck. I told the guy when he pulls all the upholsterer off to look carefully, maybe it’s tucked under there. It does appear though at some point somebody pull the front seats out and stuff the additional foam under for support. It may have been removed then. I’m going to pull the carpet out hopefully this week to clean it, it might be under there.

    New booster and master. Trans leak and a noisy rear bearing up next but I figure I can limp it for a time. She’s getting better every day!

    Well its time to stop yard work and start Newport work. I found A Chrysler road wheel on a old pickup I traded a standard rim for it, now I've got to make it look pretty. Good thing I still have paint from the last wheels.

    finally broke this out. gave it a bath and moved it to a bay where it'll be accessible for summer. newport 006.JPG thinking that over the long term i'd save money buy scrapping this one and just buying challenger's.

    Put a NOS rear bumper guard on (right side) which I found on ebay. Cleaned up the rusty left side. Turtle waxed the bumper.
