Hey guys I figured I would add my build since I joined. I have been working on it for about 6 years now and it gets more and more work each winter.

This winter is the addition of carbon fiber parts. I am in the process of making all the body panels out of carbon fiber. And then we will move onto the roof and quarter panels. I typically haven't documented the build anywhere because it's mine and I am usually in a rush working on it or doing it super late at night so that has been hard. Thus winter though I have made it a point to document everything we do. 

Check out the latest YouTube video on the build. And the previous ones if you like.

A little bit from the beginning. Here is what the car looked like when I brought it home. Just a plain jane '65 coupe with a straight 6 and automatic transmission. That didn't last long.

And for current reference here is how it looked when we loaded up for our last event. There have been thousands of man hours in between these 2 photos. And the car is almost entirely different. 

It is now an LS turbo swapped, T56 car with independent rear suspension, cage, aero and much more in between.

I will try to fill in some of the other history when I have time.

I'm excited to watch this. Please brain dump all the information you humanly can on us. Trust me when I say you will not overwhelm this group with minutiae
