Likewise Jonesy, great to meet you as well. I'm going to get me a car with the "enduro bumper" and it will definitely have the correct radiused trunk lid bumpers

I did not even realize it was a wrap. I was showing Sherri all the metal flake in the white. I had never seen a white with that much metal flake in it.

Looks killer.

Way back in post 92 just over 3 years ago I started the teardown and this bay of my garage became "parts central". There were times I wasn't sure it would make it here but we've come full circle! Darrell Cook - you got your wish from post 91
I have to say, Rats Nest does have a nice a$$.

Jim, you've done a wonderful job on "Rat's Nest". What an awesome car and a great history. Thank you for documenting the story and build for all us to follow and drool over...

Thanks Chuck. I still have to pinch myself when I think about how all this went down and all the fantastic people I've met because of this car. More fun next year when we hit the strip with it 50 years after it it made it's debut as a Super Stocker

Default Life and Times of COPO N690964

Things have been pretty quiet around here so I thought I would create this post show the transitions over the 52 year plus life of the car. I guess if we keep repeating history, black with gold stripes is next
