I'm at a bit of a quandry. I really love my hotrod, it's got more pwer than I got sense. I really would like to customize my car, but it being an "R" code, I think it would be better left stock since they are so rare. Most of the customizing I'd like to to can be reveresed, but would take considerable time to do so. So what should I do? Sell it and build what I want, customize it, or leave it stock? ::

Theres not much another person can do about that situation.

"It's your car... do what you want."

If it were me... I may sell it (Being an R-code, you could get a great return.) And use that for your ultimate resto :)

You know, I think you already have it figured out; don't jack the SCJ around. It's just too nice a model to muck with. Now, having said that, I'll admit to a few "tasteful" mods on my GT BB 'vert, w/ more planned. Global West front end, sub-frame connectors, rebuilt motor (next year) w/ Edelbrock al heads/intake, and so on. Consider me a hypocrite! :)

The only solution is to buy another one to resto, and of course keep the "R". SWMBO and college for the kids, be damned.

Much as I hate to admit it, my plan exactly. ::
I'm already putting an extension bay on my garage, just in case. Oh, I mean to finally be able put the riding lawnmower inside again. Yeah, that's it. The extra room is so I can turn it around. That's right dear. hehehehe

Most of us would give our eye teeth for a '69 R code. Modify it, if you want, since it's your car, but PLEASE do it so they can all be reversed, keeping the original parts.

I really think the ultimate solution is to kep the SCJ and get a second F code like mine and MODIFY THE HELL OUT OF IT! ::
