    How is it for rust? Did you get a look at the floor boards yet. Those are some hardcore snow tires that were on there!

    There's a few areas that have minor surface rust but the majority of the car is very good. There's only two rust holes one by the battery and one is the same spot on the other side.

    thanks for posting. I'm in Victoria. My 80 had a 267 when I bought it, now it has a rather angry 350. I got it from the second owner. The front suspension bushings where deteriorated from oil contamination so I set to " just do the suspension"....well that was 4 years and several thousand dollars ago.

    Got a few things done on the car since it got nice out, I got the tires for my soft 8s they are Falken rt615ks 275/40/17 on the back and 245/45/17 on the front. I also blacked out the front end of the car. Here's a few pictures of what the car looks like now.
