Okay, I'll start things off by entering Old Yeller. I've owned this car for almost 30 years. It's a 68 RS convertible with the original 327/210 motor and 3:08 posi rear. The original trans is long gone and was replaced with a Muncie M20 and Hurst shifter. I restored it in the early 90's and have been tinkering with it since. There are minor mods to improve driveability; sub-frame connectors, big sway bars, IROC steering box, etc. I replaced the 2bbl carb with a date correct 4bbl Rochester and manifold. The latest addition was the steelies and dog-dish caps.

Kevin's beautiful BY Drop Top gets my vote, but I will add my 67 to help boost the car count. :)


This is my 67 Project Ive been working on for the last few months. I bought it pretty much sight unseen as a basket case on May 06 of this year. The car was born just a
6 cyl with a 3 on the tree in nantucket Blue with black standard interior & had been dead for 25 + years. Since dragging this little diamond in the rust home, Ive replaced both rear quarters, outer wheel houses, trunk drop offs, the top of the dash, the trunk filler and a several sections of the floor.

I painted it September 19th at home in my garage in Marina Blue & added a white D91 stripe. The engine is a Goodwrench crate engine That Vegas69 was kind enough to make me a smoking deal on and the turbo 350 trans. I also installed a full American Thunder Flowmaster exhaust kit also courtesy of John.

I rebuilt the front subframe with tubular control arms, Power steering and a full disc brake kit from "the right stuff".

The wheels are 15x7 rallys with 215x65 Cooper Cobras

The car is a very early 08E build date less than 3500 units in the production year.

The April Ride of the Month is actually a special running for Projects.

Wreck to Ride of the month winner being the vehicle best judged to have made the best progress from dumper to daily driver, wreck to ride.

The hope is that some of our sponsors with customer service forums here on TC would be willing to pitch-in some goods or services to the winner to get the final boost they need to get the project done.

Stay tuned for the details later this winter.

Here is my Daytona Yellow 69 Z/28. Its an X77 D80 car that has 86xxx original miles and still retains it's "Born with" 302 & BU 3.73 rear end, unfortunately the original Muncie is MIA. It has it's original TRim 712 Black Deluxe Interior, tilt steering, AM/FM, & console gauges. The car has only had one repaint done in 1986 by the 2nd owner that still show well.
The car currently has a set of 15x7 Torque Thrust Originals front & rear with 225x60's up front and 235x60's on the rear.

Oner more to get the contest going..

68 Rag top
This car is a daily driver that I would jump in and drive cross country in with out a second thought. It has a 355 and turbo 350 trans with a 3.31 positrac 12 bolt out of a 69 impala that I cut down here at home. Power steering, disc brakes & power top. I taught my daughter to drive in this very car at age 13 and she has raced this car at the drag strip for the last couple of years.

Can't edit post above:

My 67:

Nearly 30,000 miles on it since I put it back together in 2012. Bought it in early 90's and drove it daily for 175,000 miles. It has over 400,000 on it and still runs the orginal 327 block with a bore of only .030 over. We have done about 1000 miles per month over the last 3 or 4 months, cruising it and enjoying the Arizona weather.

Color is inferno orange. 327 mild build with a 327/350 H/P cam, vortec heads, forged internals, All ARP bolts with studded mains, steel crank, brass bushed/floated small ends, B&M shifter700R4 trans and 3:42 gears in a GM 8.5 posi. Hotchkiss suspension. Cragar Eliminator wheels 15x8 rear with 255.6700R40.15 and 15x7 front with 235.60.15. Procar seats, ice cold vintage air and she does high mid 13's in the 1/4 if you beat the crap out of her and about 19 MPG on the freeway. possibly 20 if you can stay out of the gas. Who does that????

I'll put mine in again if it's not too late.


For those who prefer them more like they came back in the day, mine is a '69 big block SS recreation.

Drive train is all period, big block 396 making 430 HP and 460 FP of torque.

M20 backed by a 12 bolt with 3.73 gears.

Has a Holley 770 and billet MSD ready to run ignition (painted to look stock, did my best to hide the extra wires)

Everything works from the original AM only radio, to the console gauges, dome light and even the lighter.

Here's a few of my '67 RS/SS. It was built in the last week of November 1966. I bought it new from the dealer when I was 19. It was repainted about 30 years ago, has 79,000 original miles on it. The interior is all original except for the carpeting. The engine has an Isky cam, an old Torque II intake and long tube headers. The original Muncie 4 speed and 12 bolt still function well. The wheels are Keystone that I put on in 1968. When I bought this car, I said I'd never sell it.....haven't yet :)
