Yea, fixed that this weekend with new kingpins and center pivot bolt.  It really has the outside of the front tires worn down.  Steers like new now.

Check out the tail lights on the blower.  Used Auto Meter Quick Lites.  You can't miss em even in a blizzard with those bright LED's

I went to a swap meet to sell and   --Oh lord forgive me and please don't tell my wife.
I had to buy these 70 Cuda fenders and bulge hood with a snorkel scoop mounted on it,I have enough 70 parts now to build a car with :roflsmiley:
I had a friend donate this shed to the Clowns parts storage nuthouse also.I hope to get that in place in the next day or two.

Looks like you have a 500 piece Barracuda puzzle there.

My progress was slower.  Put on the 1/2 prebent stainless fuel line and the 1/2 stock-type pickup.  Then the 1/4 stainless return line.  Then visits to the hardware, auto parts, and marine supply store looking for a short piece of 1/2 rubber fuel line, not found anywhere.  I'll use a piece of heater hose till I can find one.

My AN fittings finally showed up so I get to practice making up hoses.  14 pieces and 3 different size hoses.

Not gonna be doing much to it these days except driving it now and then. Have to squirrel away any "Cuda Money" towards transport.

   The weather here in Boise has been unusually nice for this time of year. Upper 50's today so I was able to pack all the parts inside the car(doors, trunk lid,valances) and put the fenders on to get them out of the way. Did a clean up in the garage to get rid of most of the dust from spraying primer and then pushed it off to the side to await for spring.  Now I can get to my saw and start a new diorama.  Stay tuned .
