Here's the real deal.  This is the first picture I took of the car when I bought it.  The only thing I had done at this point was installation of some new air shocks.  It was sagging badly due to worn out coil springs in the rear.  I know a lot of traditionalists prefer the orginal look with the back end a little lower than the front.  Next summer I plan to lower the front end by about 2 inches.  I like 'em low and level.

I haven't done any major updates to the body or the paint.  I bought it in the conditions you see in these pictures.  Although it looks cherry here, if you were to get a good close up look, you would see its not quite as nice as it appears from 20 feet.  A new paint job is in the "5 year plan". 
Here's a shot of what it looks like now.  The most noticable change being the rally wheels and the BFGoodrich tires. 
Got the front suspension rebuilt using a PST front end kit.  Rides great, no more squeeks, and finally, finally it sits perfectly level.  Now if I could just get the rear end in the same condition!
