1972 Montego GT 429 – January 2015 Updates

This will probably be the last update for my project, or unless something else exciting happens or I make a fairly substantial change.

Those who followed this frame-off, I hope you have enjoyed seeing this car evolve.
I figure 1500 hours and $$$$$ big bucks and a lot of details have gone into it.
Without the patience of my awesome wife of  almost 30 years, this (or any of my previous projects) would have happened.

My first show was December 31st 2014 at Quaker Steak and Lube.
I took a ‘top’ trophy. Exciting being my first show with the Montego
