    If anyone in Wisconsin knows someone looking for 273 motors, I have two that I am trying to get rid of. They are posted in the for sale section, but reach out to me for details.

      I'll be there friday night and Saturday. The classic car show is still there and pretty nice but the strip is full of tuners and pickups. The show starts Saturday but be careful the police are very strict because of all the tuners and trucks doing burnouts in traffic.

      I did see your car parked at one of the hotels on the strip, I believe. I made it up for Friday and Sat AM. WAY different than the last time I went years ago - not sure if I'm board with going again with the tuner revolution. Just a handful of classics cruising - hopefully it was due to the rain.

      Just to share, I did get mine back from paint last week and back together -

      Was yellow and now is bright white with new wheels, scoops, bumpers, etc.. - It was a factory white car with white/blue interior. I did a more radical hood and decklid wrap with the snow/urban camo which matches the blacks/whites/gray of the rest of the car -- nice thing is its just a wrap and can be removed in minutes. It received a lot of attention over the weekend in the Dells.

        Yeah I was at a hotel down near the end of the strip. I think attendance was way down due to rain both days and one of the weather channels said a chance of hail at one point. Your dart looks sweet but I dont remember seeing it, however, I wasn't on the strip or at the show very much.

        I don't know about the camo, but the rest of the car is spot on. Love the dark bumpers and trim. Is that paint or powder coat?

        I've received mixed reactions on the camo - I personally like it and it pops more in person. I realize it won't be everyone's cup o' tea.

        The bumpers are actually the factory chromies that I did with black Plastidip. The chrome was crap on them and I didn't want to invest in rechroming or mess with fiberglass ones..yet. We'll see how it long it lasts - again, nice thing about that is that it peels right off if a person gets sick of it.

        Few more shots with my DSLR camera.

        Nice. The chrome on my bumpers is pretty poor and the rest of the car is dull black at the moment so I think I might try some of the Plasti-Dip on my bumpers too. Like how the bolts were left shiny for a bit of contrast. That's the beauty of the wraps and dip paint, you can try different things without huge cost or commitment.
