Man, you guys were there first thing! It was good to see you today Jose. Awesome job with the car. I love to see you enjoying it. I need to start doing more of that myself. My son has started asking, “when are we going to take that one out?” I need to take a page out of your book.

I've wanted this look since my last project. In fact I bought these wheels for my Red 67 project a few years ago. I'm really happy how this looks! 15x10 steelies dated 1973. 4.5" Backspace wearing Mickey Thompson Indy Profile N50-15s. My previous wheels were 3.75" BS. Still 1/2" clearance between inner wheel well to tire.

Jose, first happy belated birthday! Love the look of the car stance, wheels and MT's finish it off. Thanks for sharing!

I went to my local cars and Coffee Father's day and a local photographer took these photos of my car. Luckily where I live there are Cars and Coffee events every weekend year round and I do enjoy my cup of Joe!

You are hard core, Jose. I could not put that frigging thing back on, I'd have to scrounge a better one.

The only other one I have is NOS which would look out of place. The front of the car was dragged out the mud when John Baxter bought it from Judy who parked it in her grandfathers barn in the early 80s where it sat until the 2000s. Anyway the bumper and tow tabs are on and I like it! The wide angle distorts the image but I'll get some better shots soon!
