Nicholas, I echo Ron's comment. Up here at least, this would cost a small fortune. Please keep the posts up on this great save.

It is only money, and you can't take it with you. Besides, Nick won the Mega Million dollar lottery.

I would like to buy my old Dart back ,like a friend says you should buy it. He likes the idea since it is is not his money he is spending.

No lottery here - although the shop only works on this during "downtime."

Visited the car in person - still getting there! Wish it wasn't pouring rain.

Front clip was on just for testing fit and isn't bolted on - but still was a nice surprise to see. I am most impressed with the work done to repair the under-floor compartment on the driver's side and the rear quarter panel. You can recall previous photos with literally nothing there! Rear bumper is off - looks reasonable there.

Anyone who's dealt with this before - last photo is of what I think is the support beam where a mechanical siren should be installed? I'm planning on the car having a Q2B when done.
