    Man oh man have things been busy. I did get the tail pipes installed and raised up the RH side of my front portion of the exhaust. I also installed my rear sway bar. It was nice to get that box out of the garage. I took it to a show last weekend as well.

    Seth, did you notice I fixed the RH muffler for ya?

    I didn't like how the tail pipes were going to hang under the quarter panel so I cut them even with the bottom of the quarters so they are hidden for a cleaner look. Overall the car sounds the same but does cackle less when you are decelerating. It is quieter in the interior but honestly it wasn't horrible before.

    I also got the front license plate on since Iowa requires them. I also got the hood painted. Someone got a little carried away and there will need to be more work done. I should have used my good gun. I used a cheap one and it sprayed like an undercoating gun. I'm not sure why but I'm done with those now. Haha

    One more sag pic. Here are 2 pics from the show. They had a pretty good turn out. My friend's Dad's 68 4 speed 442 got best unfinished project. It has been setting for 30 years and another friend of ours had it this summer and did the mechanicals for them and got it running and driving for them. I'll try to get pics of it.

    I finally got my RH window wiper seals installed, and the door panel put on. It is just temporary as I have to replace the door seals next. I also got the stripes painted on the nose and hood. They turned out pretty nice. Now to get a radio and a couple of speakers installed and it is getting down on the to do list.

    I took it to our town's car show yesterday even though it was rainy and not such a good weather day. They still had around 100 cars and trucks. I was grateful for them. That is a crap load of work and time put into putting a show together to get rained out.

    I guess it isn't such a turd wagon after all. It got a top 30 award. I didn't take any pics of it at the show. This was the only pic I have with it there.

    I'd actually much prefer that as a trophy! Pour a beer in it - set back into your favorite chair and enjoy!

    The 'Maro looks good, the award is a heck of a lot better then another silly trophy sitting around gathering dust! Well done! (even if it ain't done)

    Thanks guys! Yes sir it is. I have definitely missed having a manual car to beat around in!

    I was really surprised to get one. There were so many nice cars there, I never go expecting to win. I like to look at other people's cars and we actually checked out a few Model A's getting ideas for Allyson's Dodge.

    Lol there's a fairly good chance that the dust would be thicker on it and more stuff piled on top of it if Ryan didn't have it.The scary part is my Trans Am is parked where the Camaro once was.

    Seth, I've become much the same, or worse! The '32 roadster sits patiently in the barn, waiting for me to get myself in gear and finish it. At this point the dust makes it look like an old barn find...... until the fiberglass body is known.

    I can't say too much really. The 40 looks like a barn find now. No joke. I guess I could blame Seth for the 40 not being done? Since he sold me this I just abandoned the 40.
