LOL Rick. I sent that from my phone while I was at work, and it fought me the whole time.
I realized it took the "z" out of Monza after I clicked send.
Smitty, I already have a 65 Corsa I'm working on, it'll be a great car, I think I'll enjoy
it a lot.
I thought it would be interesting to see how far off I was on what it would cost to make it
nice, and was wondering what it would be worth once it was finished. I was not too far off
on what it might cost. Thanks.
