    here it is on the day I picked it up around 1997 or so.
    bought this thing for 500 bucks.
    did some minor work to it, and drove it from my duty station to home every other weekend.
    about 200 miles 1 way
    I went to restore it in 99, but ended up finding my convertible instead.
    November 1999, I drove my first born home from the hospital in it.

    shes been down since 2000 or so.

    so my sons 18th is coming up next week, and I decided its time to get on this one.
    for his b day, I contracted a buddy to do some panel replacements.
    then my son paid for the sand blasting.

    here are before pics and current pics.
    his job for the next week is black oxide extraction.

    of course.
    cant decide if I want to put the good 354 or the decent 354 in it.
    either way, we gotta do some head swapping or something

    So THAT'S the one you've been posting on FB. I admit I hadn't looked too closely, just glanced in passing.

    I bet it feels pretty good to finally have it this far. Looking great so far!

    besides the 71 F250 this Lemans is the car ive owned the longest.
    I stopped driving it around 01 or so and its been in storage since.
    it does feel good to get the foundation done.
    now time to get it done.
    lots of new parts on hand.

    Nice progress, looks like the shop got a little tight with the roticery, and chassis in there.
