I brought the 53 home today!

Finally brought my 53 Panel home from storage today! It hasn't been out of the barn in the last 15 years.............Wonder if I'll live long enough to finish it.........











It has a front clip from a 68 Chevelle Last time I had it running it had a 455 olds in it. It will be going back to a 428 this time............

Looks like a lot of fun, I had a 41 panel when I was in high school. Wish It was still around.

I've had this panel for over 35 years. I bought it from my brother for a 6 pack of Bud! Wife and I drove it down to Arkansas and back in 1977. It sure has a lot of memories in my family........

This is another eastern Oregon rig. Just a little surface rust, but no rust thorough. The wife had a big smile when I dragged it home. Said she is ready to see it running again.
