Default Re-restoring the '85 GT

My son and I got it pushed into the garage last night. It's the first time it's moved since Nov '08 and hadn't seen the inside of the garage since way before that. It doesn't look terrible in the pic but boy it needs a ton of work. I can't believe I let it get this bad but what's done is done. Realistically I have 4 mos, at the most, before Drag Week. I'd like to get a few weeks of driving and racing before I make that trip. Started the teardown immediately. Flashback to '94 when I did this project the first time. I just hope it's as reliable as it was the first go 'round. Lee
