We don't have much snow here in Massachusetts, but it's cold. Between 10-35 everyday pretty much. Though this weekend they are claiming it will be 50! WINNING!

What? no, when I said "time to strip it down," I meant time to strip it down of all the good parts and say bye bye.

Because I picked up a 76 GT that was pretty much complete and only missing a couple things to be running.

It was not rust free. The yellow car needed the rear decklid cutout and a new section welded in. Rust holes in the spare tire spot in the trunk. Most serious spot was the decklid.

Of the two cars, the orange GT is the rarer one being a hardtop instead of the coupe. Yellow car was also pretty much already a shell because i had it so far torn apart from years ago. Would be a another 10+ yrs before i got around to doing what i wanted and or getting the car back on the road as it was lol. This way i will have a running car and building my 4g63 on the side while i enjoy the car.

Whoa that is awesome. Is it rude for me to ask what something like that costs? Maybe I need one....

You do need one Jeremy! 750lb single line and 1500 double line hoist from northern tool for $210. Plus about $50 for material to hang it. It lifted the bike no problem, my roommate also rode it up to the ceiling so its tested at least for 160lbs hahaha

Harbor freight has a similar hoist for just slightly cheaper, but the northern hoist has more weight capacity for the price.
