New, in Georgia


Recommended Posts

I just purchased my 72 on Friday, and I'm planning on resto-modding it. While I was searching for info I kept stumbling across these forums, so I figured I should probably sign up now that I've got it. The car needs a lot of work, and this will be my first major project car, so thanks in advance for all the help. Glad to be here!

Welcome from eastern Tennessee! ::welcome::

If you have to do floor pans, be sure to remove the fuel tank, first.

Welcome. The 71-73 coupes are and always have been very cool cars. Yours would look great with a blower sticking through the hood and side pipes-I think that's the ticket



"I love my Hookers!" and "Get some Strange" probably have a different connotation to non automotive enthusiasts!

17062513_image(1).thumb.jpeg.01b478d8a89d03a12bc1d6111283362c.jpegHahaha, thanks for all the warm welcomes, everyone. I've just finished rebuilding the carb, and I've got some more basic maintenance to do before I've got her running right. The floor pans seem solid, but I need to strip out the interior to get a better look. There doesn't appear to be any major rot, fortunately.

Welcome from the low country of South Carolina. Can you give some info on that rear spoiler?? Looks cool...


The spoiler, according to the seller, originally came with the car. I honestly have no idea what's stock and what's aftermarket, since the ID plate is missing from the door. I'm pretty sure it's fiberglass, because it doesn't weigh much (wasn't bolted down when I bought the car).
