I was going to let it go, because the idea of having a Hellcat Challenger, and one less car to build was appealing, but once I fixed the areas of the car that needed attention to get the car ready to sell,I looked at the car,and decided that with the work I did to it,and the parts I have, it wouldn't take much to just put the car together. Then I had a few beers one night during an episode of Roadkill, and said, what the hell, I am just going to put the car together and drive it! The Hellcat Challenger I want to get is only going to get more affordable the longer I wait. There are plenty of them to choose from, 70 Sixpack Chargers, not so much!Glad you decided to keep it and enjoy it as it is and fix it up as you go.
When I lost my mind, and decided to put this car together and drive it,I figured that I could put the car together for a few grand and make it roadworthy, and I am quickly learning that it is going to take 5 to 7 grand, not counting the car,the engine, and all the parts I already have. Doing the math on what the car stands me,the value of the parts I already have, and the parts I need to put it together, it will be a thirty grand adventure, when it is a running driving car, without any body or paint work,and chrome bright work.
Today I am going to assemble the front seats. I already installed the burnt orange Legendary seat covers, and added extra foam to bolster the sides,and beef up the bottom cushion. I painted the seatbacks already as well as the hinge covers. They should go together well.
