Well ive been working on this for a few months now on and off and im almost done i just need rims and tires for it and shell be ready to roll.I drove out to indiana to get this car.I got 10,000 total into it i paid 7100 for it.Its only got 18,000 miles awd ultraview v-6 which is fine for her, 3rd row seat all but dvd which im gone to add.The car drives excellent,all it had was sheetmetal damage and a/c condensor was hit,no frame damage just the flange at the end of the rail was bent.I do all of my own work from body work to paint to anything else in between.Im trying to decide on rims and tires now she wants something polished.Over all im really happy with it,other then i have to drop it off to the dealer to get a newer calibration for password being forgot after it sits for more then 2-3 days.But i know how to get it started anyway.:thumbsup: I added the cadillac emblems this morning.Also check out my other albums of my 73 vette i have .

Looks great. The last-to-first transition is great.

Nice 73, too. That's my favorite year, but I prefer stock. However, I wouldn't through that engine out from under the hood if I had it.

In the past have seen some with the tires for sale.

Go with a 18" machine faced wheel with the charcoal insides from a V8,
or a polished 18".

The 17 inchers on the V6s are my least favorite wheel.
Kind of blah looking, the V8 wheels are much better.
