Hello everyone, I am Bill and after racing with some of you guys a couple weeks ago in my new Challenger I got motivated to pull up to the starting line in my old car. I'm 6 months to a year from getting the old girl back on the street/strip, but every trip starts with that first step.

Bill

So here is day one of the rebirth of the Ugly Bird. I pulled the bag off the original #'s matching engine, and the cover off the body.

Nice, looks like original paint but underhood looks new!
Is it an older resto?

yes, i originally restored it starting in 84. then in 88 set it up for Musclecar Nationals style racing. I think I even took Ralph to Atco once about then. Then in 93 i restored the engine bay and engine for show duty. Showed it on and off till 2000 when it got put away. paint is looking rough and some old body work is showing its age. Right now i need to get new carpet, and tare down the engine and give it a good look through. If everything is kosher, I'll put it back together paint it, put all the original markings back on and take it out to play.
Step two will be to make it faster than my Challenger.
