After a few years of people asking me "is that Brian's old car?", I decided to change it to "MY" car. It was red, with grey tweed interior and a 454 big block. Over the Winter it became Indigo Blue with Deerskin leather interior. I changed the big block to an LS2 a couple of years ago. I had a friend help me take the v-butt windshield out and replaced it with a 1 piece. Also, removed the vent windows. Added A/C, cruise control, overhead console and some other goodies. Now, it's Bob's car. We're in the process of moving back to Florida, from Ohio, so I will be able to enjoy it a heck of alot more.

Bob, I've had the same thing happen to me, so you need to change enough on the car so it's not easy to recognize, as you've done.

In 1994 I sold one of my hot rods to a buddy. He painted his race car to match it. In 2004 he sold it back to me, and sold the race car to some one else. He told me all the time he had it, people would ask if that was my old truck.

Bob's car looks good and sounds like a lot of fun.
