I've always been into classic muscle cars, and when the opportunity came to me to own one in the form of a 1969 Pontiac Bonneville Convertible at the age of 13 or 14, I couldn't pass it up. I picked up the car for 500 dollars and brought it home the same day I laid my eyes on it for the first time. Matter of fact, I didn't even know what a Bonneville was back then, or what it would even look like! But long story short, we brought the car home, and got it running that same day. I won't soon forget hearing that 7.0 L V8 come to life for the first time... Ever since then, we've been through the entire car. Frame-off, engine and trans out. We have been through everything. When it is "done" VERY soon, (summer 2018), it won't actually be done. I have plans to spend at least another 15k into the car in engine upgrades, custom brakes and suspension, and custom wheels, to name a few things. Cheers.
