pics of my 67 @ my starting point

http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?s...413.1216295962 link to my FB album. kinda rough but I am optimistic. I am trying to figure out if I should get the top done before winter or wait till after the body work/paint is done and just cover it. I dont have any indoor storage .
Also in a couple of pics you can see cables going from brackets on the exhaust manifolds to the upper control arm bolts anyone seen that kind of setup before?

Those brackets and cables were installed by your local Chevrolet authorized dealer in 1968 as part of the very first nation wide safety recall initiated by Ralph Nader. It was to prevent your motor from lifting up and jamming the accelerator rod as the result of a broken motor mount. They are considered a collectible part now.

Several hundred did. The drivers of the vehicle where too stupid to put the car in neutral, or to turn off the engine.

This is called natural selection in terms of evolution, and should have been allowed to weed out those inferior people from the herd (but that is what lawyers; our natural predators do for a living, cul the weak minded).
