That car is simply amazing. Due to the age of the thread I couldn't see the pics at the beginning. Can you repost those pics Dirty Rat? Thanks for further motivation. I am starting the rear suspension work this weekend.

Thanks Rat, I can see those too. I would like you to repost or give a link to the engine/suspension/interior pics. Again, fabulous work. I read the thread with your magazine cover. It appears to be that luck is in my favor. Chris McDonald lives pretty close to me. I will need to talk to him and check out his C3.

Thanks again,

Josh
