Superb keep up the great work  !
These cars are meant to be driven so enjoy the hell out of all of it. Not just the look of it when its all cleanCS

Thanks JD-DAVE... and others for the well wishes on this long journey. I finally learned how to post pictures so I am kinda Happy about that. It took a nap back in 1971 because of a street racing incident, during the Nixon era and became whole again 50 years later during the Biden era. I will try to post some pics of some of its journey but a few pictures were posted on 1.0 and were lost. When I first took ownership it had Black interior, but smelled like Bong water, cigarettes, found some roach clips, roaches- not the bug variety, womens panties and a few other interesting items. So I said self AHHH Hell No, that was from its previous life it now has fresh parchment interior and smells like a new car. I saved the Original interior for those who would cry foul. Oh if that car could talk of where it had been and what they were doing in its brief 5 year life. ;D Anyways thats the updates for now, and for some that thought it was a Unicorn- Pictures will prove its back together again!

That is one fantastic Shelby! And yes, the cars do carry a collection of memories held in their chassis metaphorically speaking of course.
"Low she sits on five spoke wheels
Small block eight so live she feels
There she's parked beside the curb
Engine revving to disturb
She's the princess from his past
Red paint gold stripes damned she's fast"

Sled- Thanks for the compliment... When it came home in crates and boxes I could envision its completed looks but didnt really know hoe long it would be before I wasnt embarrassed to bring it out. Finally I can post some pictures and updates.

It takes time, 427.  My Hertz as I am want to say a little too often, survived three marriages.  In 2012 I finally got my act together after the great restoration that Klutt did at Legendary and had the rest of the car put together, some of it by my own hands for better or worse.  So I've made some of my own road memories with the car though on the odd night, when the moon is full and I am sitting behind the wheel alone in my garage with the engine off, I can hear the Pacific Ocean calling.  The old Dorian Gray needs to revisit the Pacific One some day.  I can imagine renting a trailer and getting her out there to drive the road.  And the various canyon ways.

Looking good there. Might consider posting a "before picture" since it might motivate others and remind you even how far you've gotten.

Just a thought :)
