Default Sneak peak at my 66 Cutlass

I want to start on a complete build on my car but I am still buying parts a saving money right now. I have c6 brakes and a bunch of new goodies from Mark but I know when I start the snowball starts from the top of Mt Evererst. With Goodguys here next weekend I had to get the stance right so I chopped the stock springs until I get Eibachs in.

Sold the other wheels last year after Good Guys and have been driving it around like the first pic.

Today I finally got a chance to start working on it. Figured out what the new combo will look like at ride height. I also got the old suspension out from under the car.

I hope to have suspension and brakes mocked up Sunday so I can measure for wheels. I am running out of time. It will be on power tour come hell or high water.

I'm coining the phrase "JoeTouring" for us guys w/o the deep pockets but still building decent rides/drivers. It's coming along nicely.

Are you still planning to yank the body from the chassis?
