i finally got some good luck

so after being unemployed for 6 months, moving to a different state, getting in a wreck and a couple less than happy run ins with the cops, my luck has changed...got a job today working in a shop that restores classics and does regular repair work too. there is a 1970 Cuda with a numbers matching 440 6pack a 1968 SuperBee and the 1967 actual Shelby GT 500 should be back from the paint booth in the morning... oh and there are two Fairlanes a 1968 red Chevelle SS and a Pontiac 1970 GTO sitting in the storage building....there is a God i get Paid to enjoy myself at work.. oh and the boss is so pleased to have a muscle car enthusiast hanging out with him that hes gonna let me take the Cuda home for a weekend car show thats coming up in January. i know its a Mopar and not a Ford but it'll still haul some serious A$$ and attract the pretty ladies too lol ill post some pics tomorrow afternoon plus hes letting me use the shop to do whatever i want to on the Ranger. lol just had to express my excitement tonight

the Cuda and one of the Fairlanes is numbers matching but yea a custom job is worth more to average joes cause it "looks cool" to us gearheads a factory original car is worth its weight in gold
