Dang I love those e-body's - the reason I got a cat is because I couldn't afford a "good" one! I did pass up on a 440 Charger buy in Minnesota last fall....so many cars, so little wallet!! ;>)

First 67 Cougar I bought had been sitting in the woods for some time. When we hooked a wrecker to it and started pulling it came apart at the firewall. Ended up just pulling parts and scraping my 1st project....

Well, when 90% of the car is available in reproduction.....it comes down to easy $$$$$. For the DIY guy,.. time, talent and less $$$$. Our challenge is availability within reasonable cost,,,if we only had it so easy! How many here have had to purchase a parts car or 2, to be able to complete your project?? For us,...true ambition.

The Mopars are like the Mustang easy to by the parts and replace . I work with a mopar guy with a vast collection of runners and rebuilds .

Still, that is a LOT of rust repair. I wonder why Dynacorn isn't reproducing these bodies as well as the camaro and mustang? Seems like a legit business opportunity to me...

Yep, I have been watching the '08 season Chop, Cut, Rebuild and their 'cuda project. Classic Industries/Goodmark makes almost the whole car in parts! And the independant rear suspension they put in the 'cuda (not to mention the 800 HP blown hemi), it's almost enough to convert me to a Mopar guy!
