Hello from Motown
« on: December 05, 2018 - 02:43:02 pm »
Hi folks. I'm Mike Ricketts, from metro-Detroit. I have 2 `cudas. The first is a 70 ragtop, which my parents bought at a bank-repo auction in 1-72. The other is a 72, which started out as a body-in-white from Chrysler. It went to Dave Wren, out on the west-coast, to be a small-block S/S car. It has NO numbers, and has always been a racecar. The ragtop is a sedate resto-mod project [I'm in the home-stretch], and the 72 is still a legal racecar.

Sweet rides! 

I would assume green is the original color on the vert?            EF8 ? 
Is that a bs or a bh car?
