    Hello everyone. New guy to the site. Have to say, so much good info on this site. I have a 73 satilite that was handed down to me. It was my younger brother that passed away around 30 years ago. The car was parked ever since then. After dad passed and then mom last November. I ended up with the car. It was in bad shape when I received it. I have gotten it running and was able to drive it home last Saturday. First time it was on the road in a little over 30 years. I have a long way too go. Body, paint and upholstery. Here's some pictures of before and now.

      Welcome to the site. That's a sharp looking car, I think its the first I have ever seen with both the rocker and bet molding trim. Will look good when painted. Did you modify the grill and hood or was that done 30 years ago?
