Well, a HUGE thanks for the help... What did I do wrong? Course, I have to kill the double upload on photobucket on one of the shots.

Thank you, SB, also for the help. Guess I am a bit challenged on the whole photobucket/link deal. Meanwhile, one of my vocations is professional photography, mostly architecture, though. Now if I can just figure out how to post in here! Seriously, thanks for the assistance.

I agree. Looks mint. I forgot how much lower the freeboard was on the early Challenger. Very nice example you have there!

Gracias... If not for the help from you guys I may have never gotten a photo up! It was in nice shape when I got it, but after my neighbor got involved with his buffer and wisdom on how to color sand etc, it was a true cosmetic metamorphosis. I was truly shocked that it would buff out to nearly a "like new" luster. There were some nice pin stripes and flourishes on that I could vaguely see the imprint of before I buffed and in the right light the outline is still there. Might attempt to put them back on some time. For now I am concentrating on getting a much better trailer fit and then controls, yadda, yadda..... You guys know the drill better than I. Man, to have your old engine in it, Ryan! That would be sick... And fresh Bravo drive at that point..... And some Latham steering to control the beast. Stereo will come before all of that except controls!

Had a feeling! Super fun to see video like that. Will have to get some of my tame, bone stock copy in a little chop. Even at 60 I think it glides over the chop pretty well. No super radical airs on the lake here, but the occasional nice floater when going in to the wind.
