          Thanks! The work space is still a work in progress too! I don't have enough space already to put my herd in now. LOL! The other projects and my 2015 Hellcat Challenger are mad at me!!! I'm trying to save enough $$$ to add on to the shop.

              Love the garage. Looks high enough for a lift. Any before pics of the car? I enjoy seeing the progression but it looks darn good so far.

                Looks like a great project.
                My favorite Mopars are A12 cars. Id take one over a hemi car or any Ebody.

                    Sweet car. What colors you going with?

                    What's in the background under the cover?

                      Yes. This was the day my wife and I dug the real deal Bahama Yellow A 12 out of the poison oak. It is a one owner car in my local area since new. We loaded it up and headed 10 miles home. Needless to say it is the best find I've run across! I have all the documents since new even the original S.C. title, broadcast sheet, fender tag, buyers order with his 1965 Olds trade in, bank contact, payment book.... I got it all. Numbers matching everything!!! I couldn't believe it!!! IMG_1059.JPG IMG_1058.JPG IMG_1060.JPG IMG_1057.JPG

                        Then we got it to its new home! My back yard! Me and my wife took the back seat out and BOOM, BOOM, BOOM Broadcast Sheet!!!! The original carbs were in a box in the trunk. It had that Direct Connection 6 BBL set up on the engine. I had these restored too and boxed them up. We filled up a 55 gallon bag with trash! It was a mess!!! We are HAPPY!!!!!!

                            The hard part is behind me with the metal work and getting a few of the lost or non usable pieces. I have almost all the parts. Body and paint time now.

                              How about from the day we picked it up.... I have older post on here. I had some health issue's and had to get straightened out. Now we are making progress on the project that should be going up and down the road already. We gonna make a driving show car. I'm trying to decide if I wanna get some of those Keystone Klassic wheel's the guy ran for years. But, I do have the original H wheels for shows and cruise-ins. We'll see.

                              It has an old school floor lift that works off air. I have a new lift that is 3" too tall. I could cut into the ceiling but not now. I may put it outside for tearing down or wait till I figure out if I'm going to add on to my current shop, build on or move to another shop. Thanks for the comment.
