Was many many years, figure more than 8yrs and the excuse was was their fathers and they want to fix for him. He was already dead over 5yrs and he also didn't want to sell while he was alive.

This use to be in chase village at the front of an unused building for years . Close to Rich Gold.

The nice thing with American cars is that you can get every single part for them. There are so many companies making reproduction parts and there are still new parts available.

I got a catalog from OPGI for my GTO and they have down to the last screw , sticker , rubber seals etc .

Diego yes and somewhere Gasparillo.

Ikr on those American. My little one is also very easy, just no one catalogue like the American ones. Those catalogues take all the guess work out of building if it's a showroom finish you working towards.

Brij Maharaj Auto & Heritage Museum

Here is one of our projects we have been working on- A car dear to the hearts of our family, it was the childhood car of Mr. Maharaj's two daughters. Many may remember seeing it around San Fernando in the 90's.

This Ford Pinto was loaned and subsequently put down for about 20 years. We took her out a few months ago and made her feel like 1980 again.

This coming week, we will be posting more about the Ford Pinto.
