    Default First picture post

    This is my first try at posting a picture.
    I bought my 65 in April of 2001.
    The picture is about 1 year old and since then I've lowered the rear about 2" using longer bolts on the rear fiberglas spring. So it sits a little better now than in the picture.
    Although it's not a stock look I thoroughly enjoy it. I love to wrench and ride as often as possable.

    pretty, very pretty; I like it takes me back in time to the late 60's when the three taillights were a popular Mod.

    Congrats, your car looks great, and even the wheel flairs ( often frowned upon ) are very tastefully done. An excellent ride, and I hope you enjoy it to the fullest.

    Sweet ride. I'd like to see a picture of it lowered. It would be perfect.

    When I got my '65 a couple of years ago, it was seemed down in the front. I checked the assembly manual and found that it was down 1-1/2' from stock so I replaced the springs with a set of stock springs which brought it back to the fresh from the factory stanch. Looks better now.
