The New Blue Monster

Recommended Posts

I joined not long back and posted a couple of photos of a '73 Mach 1 I recently aquired. Well, I finally got the ugly beasty home and started tearing out the seriously toxic interior so I wouldn't die from some mysterious disease while working on it. This is defenitely the beginning of a very long road so I thought I'd share some photos of the start of this journey.

Maybe the pink was a warning for the toxic inside? ;-) What a great opportunity to make an awesome car out of it. Good luck and have fun! :-)
