After a long road,


...the 65 is on the road. Plated, stickered and insured.

Passed the safety... zero issues. The guy gave me a fright though. When I walked in he said dejectedly that he almost failed it, I said Why? With a grin he said your missing an inspection plug on one rear backing plate. Facepalm.

 

Thanks a ton to all the great guys that helped me get it to this point, I wouldn't be here without you all. You all know who you are, and there's a lot of you.

New plates, decent letters and numbers I think,

I love it!     my style,  glad you saved the Soul and patina!   

and you resisted the urge to slop on the basecoat/clearcoat bright red like all the other collector cars out there today

Very well done and interesting to watch the progress through CP!  I watched the driving video that your daughter recorded and it sounds nice as well.  

 

Very cool 65!

I took it down the QEW, over the bridge to Fruitland Rd. It drives nice on the highway. 2200 at 60 mph.
