At any rate, I hope all is well with you and your family.



I appreciate you asking about Dad.It's been a few months since his surgery and he is starting to get back to his old self. His surgery was pretty invasive and it takes a long time to heal up and even longer at his age. He's a tough old dude though so he's getting through it. They are pretty sure they got it all but only time will tell.

I know it has been a long time since I posted any updates on the Chevelle. The main reason is there just have not been many lately. I have the body back on the frame for the last time. All of the sheet metal is back on and the gaps are close. All of the glass is out as well. What I am waiting on is my buddy who is going to paint it. He recently bought a new home and is busy doing a remodel. He is very talented and is worth the wait to me so that's what I'm going to to. He said he still hopes to get it done this year but I won't hold my breath.

I have everything on hand to finish assembly and I have seriously contemplated puting it together for this year and enjoying it but I just can't do it. It's an empty shell now and ready for the body shop and I really don't want to have to take it all apart again. I have to be patient.

We have been keeping busy building my son's 67 C10 and it has made it much easier for me to wait on the Chevelle. I still get on here all the time and check on your build and several others that I have been following for a long time. You guys keep me motivated!!
