Default Cousins 68 - 9 year project
Cousin just "finished" up a 9 year project. He's not working on new wheels and tires.

No build shots. Guy doesn't own a camera.

Yeah, he picked it up for a couple hundred bucks, turned it into this. Got offered a band new C6 Vette straight up and turned it down. As far as I know, it's just an RS. The extent of my knowledge there goes to the emblems on the side

I believe there is a correction to be made though. I am being told it is a 67 due to some of the features on it. Either way...still a bad ass car. Burn outs from stop sign to stop sign....amazing.

Yes, yes it is. I'll try and get some better pics here in a couple weeks. He lives a ways away so its hard to get some. That and IF it comes out to play, it's out for a total of 3 hours before it goes back under a cover and locked in a garage

Thats what I don't get. You spend that much time, effort, and money on it and its then only taken out for a few hours. I would drive that thing all over the place. Show it off!

Also, do you mind adding the pics to your album, so that will show up on the main picture deal on the front.

Well...the area he lives in is pretty bad and it really is likely to get stolen if it's out too long. He's waiting for some more stuff on it, then he'll drive it a little more. He just finished up getting my uncles old 84? Vette fixed up and waiting to do paint on that. His wife drives that daily. Then he drives his Yukon as a DD. He's a GM or DIE kinda guy.

Yep....haha. We were at a party out on West Main Street, where I took the pics... needless to say he was at the window the whole time. Then he couldn't take it anymore and had his wife come pick it up after 2.5 hours it being out there.

It gets driven to shows and out of town, but never in town. Hard to understand the logic on that if you're not from the area.

Yep... Like I said, we watched one dude smash into the curb staring at it while driving...It's an eye catcher and likely to have shit done to it. We will see what happens when we do some new wheels and tires.
