1st Time vintage owner

Hello all, thanks for having me. we just recently purchased our 1st vintage car, 70 base sportroof. We wanted a driver car we could enjoy now and change it along the way. the Marti report says it started out a Base sportroof with the grabber special value package in Grabber Green with White interior, 302 auto, AC, PS, PB, the AC was removed at some point, it was built on 3/12/70. It is now 69 Silver Jade, with twister decals, 351C, comp cam, FItect fuel injection with fuel commander, FMX, 8.8 3:55 rear with Eaton Lockers, Dakota Digital gauge cluster, this is how i purchased it. Any comments or suggestions welcome. there is lots of knowledge here, thanks again.

Nice looking car. Hope it drives well and you enjoy it.
In your description you forgot to mention the upgraded wheels and tires. The wheels look really nice.
