Times two.   2thumbs  That video has me thinking.  Sounds nuts, but I really like the look of the square headlights...and since I'm (eventually) building a birdible, it's not like I am trying to pull off a dead-on factory look.  Would the vacuum system hold the headlight doors up properly at highway speed?

i havent had anyone in front of me to see if they stay up but i would think they do. there are magnets that hold the doors up when the engine is off. ill have to find that out i guess 2thumbs 2thumbs

     Great find n price for the 70. i would like to run on a deal like that on a 68-69-or 70 belve or satellite to do a custom bird .think i would leave rear window and modify the nose to fit stock fenders.love the little 68-69 body side line and tail lights.  well great stuff you are getting and making,all the best.DJ

 have you looked at the,     daytona clones around the world,     and ,  Wing cars in a  convertable state,  threads? 2thumbs

  doing a daytona clone you will need a 70 hood  an fenders to mate up too the nose cone. 69 hood totally diff on front edge as it is rounded down .good luck on parts and build.dj   2thumbs popcrn

heres some pics of my newest toy. 1969 coronet 440. i traded a 2002 Hyundai accent that i bought from a customer for 300 dollars. i put less than 200 into it and found the coronet on a used car lot. after some talking with the owner we agreed to trade sense he can sell a running car much easier than a project car with no motor/trans. i think i got a hell of a deal.. the daytona clone is in the garage and hopefully will be out this spring and have a few less colors. so many cars, so little time. im up to 6 mopars. 5 toyotas. 2 air cooled vw's. 4 hondas and 1 a class rv. no wonder my wife says i have a problem.

No progress on the Daytona clone yet. Ive been messing with my satellite. I got it running last week and its the first time it ran since 76 or 77. It's just a 318 but I'm building it so my wife can drive it and she wants to get decent gas mileage. Plus it a numbers matching motor/trans which is kinda cool to me anyways. I got a 70 coronet front clip for 350 bucks and started sourcing the hood extension and nose. I plan on starting another post on my superbird clone progress.

Yea sadly I did sell the clone but it has a great new home on the east coast and will get the attention that I can't give. Really didn't want to sell it but I needed to pay off the c500 I'm buying.
