If I ever need to sell mine, I may have to slap on a few fiberglass panels and make some money...that is crazy.

I hate to see the fold down rear seat modified like that too. Just build a platform and cover it, could provide functional storage with a trap door or two. Well, I guess there are lots of things we would each do differently to each others cars...

Can't wait to see what the final is on this...any guesses?

Default Not to change the subject...

67mousetang, what are your tire and wheel specs on your 67' coupe? I'm looking at putting TTD's on my 67, and i'm trying to get a feel for tire size, rubbing, etc. Looks like yours is also lowered

Had I not seen the starting bid and current bid, I would have guessed 15-20k max, but apparently I would have been completely wrong since it is already so high! Surely it can't get much higher, right??

Some might argue that it seems a bit high for an Eleanor project.

It's at least five times what it's worth.

My thoughts exactly. What's up with the exhaust? Suicide machine?
