Beautiful car!  These land yachts were truly American classics! You've just gotta love a two door car that is a block long!  Is this the kit that came with a trailer?

Great job. I owned a 75 caprice classic in the mid 80's for a couple years and it was a great car. I gave that up for a 73 Buick Electra 225. That was bigger but they both drove great. I sure do miss those 2 cars. Again great job on your build.

Nice job on the build, and I have to say, I really like the subject. Nothing wrong with Camaros and Mustangs, but, seeing something outside of the box is refreshing. Again, nice job!

Yeah we called them land Yachts they used to float down the road with over assisted power steering so you could steer them with one finger!

Now this is awesome. I really enjoy seeing these old sedans in their O.E.M. fashion. A lot of younger folks know nothing about these vehicles existence so it's good to build and show these. 

Nice engine too. Yes
