My dad was given his first car back in 1971. He restored in over the course of 6 years and the picture on top is him the day it was finished. In the 80's and 90's the condition of the car rotted away and it was eventually put on blocks. throughout my entire childhood my dad told me how he wanted to one day bring it back to its original glory and to see it shine again. 2 Years ago I got my first major job and I bought it from him. It took us both 2 years total to put it together. the bottom picture is of the same car 36 years later and me sitting in the drivers seat.... We are both 23 in the photos. I'm going to keep my dads first car forever and hopefully pass it onto my kids.

you are aware you ruined that car right? provided the car in the first image is correct, you changed the nose, removed the spoiler, and got rid of the albeit pointless side scoops. god only knows what else you changed. any and probably every shelby fan who sees this is hoping you die. you did a good job restoring fixing it, but its still ruined

dude being someone that actually owns a real Shelby (the one in this picture) I can assure you that my dads first car wasn't a real Shelby. it was originally a Silver Frost GT car that my dad heavily modified. What we did was bring it back to its original condition. Please do a bit more research before telling me I ruined my car.

That explains it. I was about to say, "Way to repaint a GT 350 from its famous paint scheme."

firstly i said if the car in the first image was correct meaning if that is not how it was when it was first purchased then the rest of my comment would not be applicable and should be dismissed, but i was trusting the image so i continued the comment. and second, how in the **** am i supposed to research a blurry image of a scanned photo of a car that has no visible identifiers like a license plate or vin code?

So you'd rather have a car that's on the blocks than a working car?

My dad just restored our 1968 Impala. We've only had it for a few years, but it's still a bitchin' car.

That love.

It's a great car with a great story. I wish you all the best.

My first car the day I got her. She's had to get a fair bit of work done, but holy hell is she fun to drive.

I've got a '63 Ford Galaxie I'm building myself. It was pretty ugly when I got it a year ago, but it's getting better slowly. Just got it back from the shop yesterday after getting some pretty major frame repair, hopefully I'll have it registered within a month

I love seeing restorations, and espcially fellow FJ'rs that are into cars. My dad and I are working on our 1972 VW van during times when I'm home from school. It will some day look like this again, but it will probably take a while.

That was technically my first car too.
But it needed $2000 in repairs so we traded it to a mechanic to help pay for repairs on my truck. The truck doesn't have brakes. MFW

Naw man he made it to look like a GT350. So what we did is we brought it back to stock GT coupe specs.I did end up getting a real Gt350 a few years ago though when the marked was down.

What did it have in it when it started its life?
