Yes that is correct.

I see this is my 5,000th post!

Eight years to get to this # including all the Vette Babe Posts.

Congrats on post #5000!

I used a on line calculator to figure out the Vette Babes alone are 2,354 of the 5K posts.

So no doubt almost 1/2 of my total.

I have to go to MI sometime this month to pick it up. I have a 53 to get ready for paint and then I can get started.

My plan is to use the body tub from 1990 #444 to do the conversion and make the molds from. After that, I'll probably sell the body tub as a convertible. Someone can build a car out of it.
