I have the intention to work on my '76. Done nothing yet since march... I'm planning to buy an used '73 hood for my project. The Original one is repared with a lot of bondo and popnails. It doesn't fit good. I'm hoping the new hood will be alright and fit better

Find my electrical short in the dash and center gage console. Get it smogged/tagged and on the road Cheesy I'm leaning towards the 17" rims also. And many many more items and jobs to do Tongue

17" tires are the way to go ...the difference is amazing, but on a manual steering car you have to plan your slow turns carefully or have popeye arms Grin

It will take me more time to get the 17” ones but I think it will be worth it in the end Cheesy

Just finished a total frt end rebuild on my 77 including a new 4 core alum radiator. Took it out this afternoon to get some corn & it drove like a new car.  Now I've got my mind on new trailing arm bearings & new u joints...then it should be on par with my 68 & 73.
