    It really is butter. The front suspension makes it ride like butter, if butter had landmines as the main ingredient.

    Thanks to Justin (phayzer5) I now have a ‘78 460 sitting on a stand in the garage.

    Here’s to the slow build!

    So I am on the hunt for some 03+ rear calipers/brackets. The virus has prevented me from getting out at to the yard in B’ham. When I went to the yard in Montgomery, every 03+ car was missing the rear axle. The trip wasn’t a bust though, I scored a set of upper front control arms from a ‘92! Plus the BOSS Brent (visionmercury) sent me a set of spindles. That’s why you’re the BOSS, thanks brother!

    I am really looking forward to getting this rear rebuilt, the brakes on, and installed!

    Also, here’s a shot as to how she currently sits. Still a blast to drive! The 235/50R18 fills up the wheelwell nicely!!
