This is a 71 Holden Monaro. I started to built as a 17yo and took a few years to finish. That 20+ year ago.

Very nice! That was your first build ever? Did you take it completely apart etc? Howmany have you done after this one? It makes me wonder what an engine compartment in the body colour would look like a 7123...

Thanks. Yes it is the first car I built. I stripped it to bare metal and done almost everything my self except the paint. I have never built another car to this extent but finished off another build in the pic as a tuff street car with a 600ish 454 in it and I never really touched the 73 Mach 1. Colour coded engine bay and block always looks kind of nice i think.
