Best thing to do is post what you need and we'll see what we can do. There is very little aftermarket support for these cars so it's either trying to find NOS parts or good used stuff. Depends what you are trying to build.

Welcome aboard, my friend. This is one of the friendliest places on the planet.

Dream car, huhn? Well,....you definitely came to the right place. Lots of us with dreams here. It may take time and patience, but it will be worth it in the end. Whenever you get frustrated, grab your favorite beverage and come here and get some therapy.
S'all good bro! :dance:

Parts you say. Just ask and someone will probably have it. Please, read the "for sale" and "wanted" rules. There are good reasons for them. You can find parts here, V8Monza.com, e-bay, Craigslist. There are many very knowledgeable members and all are very friendly and willing to help.

Need some answers? Try using the search engine and/or "H-body.org" library. Lotsa good stuff there.

Gotta show some pics.

Again, welcome to the gang. Glad to have another member.

Good luck and have fun. :D

cheers jer :mrgreen:
