    I found some good parts at a junkyard today, among them is an 8 inch rear end, brand new differential, and disc brakes to go on the rear, so now I'm getting 4 wheel disc brakes for the cost of 2. Need to scrounge up another $300 for a new dual bowl master cylinder and a brake booster, and I'm 99% of the way done with this project.
    ETA: And most likely some new brake lines.

    Noblis has to have some longer videos coming, the old ones were great.

    edit - I'm in the wrong thread but I'm leaving this. Hey Pontiac.

    No harm there. Doesn't make me feel as sad as I am when I talk to myself

    Got any new pictures? The ones in here don't seem to be working.

    I do, gotta find them first. Don't know why they aren't working for me, I might as well just load them all up at some point.



    The picture below was the night I brought it back to life - literally the whole family there was to see. (kinda a family heirloom so its a big deal for them)



    And lastly, I have a video. Its rather quiet so if you want to hear anything be sure to use earphones.

    I won't have any fresh pictures for a while unless something happens, I don't plan on having it out until this coming up spring.

    It's a nice blue color. Can't wait to see it all clean and polished up! Hope it has no dents on it.

    The starter died. Took it apart to figure out what was wrong with it, and the internals are rusted shut. I'm going to get a mini starter to avoid heat soak in the future, so another $200 or so expense.
