Title: 1968 GT350 #0220
Post by: RjPCarGuy on December 08, 2020, 10:06:07 AM
Hi, new to the Forum, looking at this car, can anyone tell me what they know of the car. Story is the car sat for a long time and the first owner had blown the engine within the first year, according to him the block was replaced under warranty.

you need thick skin for how cold it is most of the year

my wife is from southern Ontario and that's place is bad enough in the winter



Lucky we Winnipegers have thick skin  ;D
