Wasn't Christine a Plymouth Fury?

I hope it's nowhere near 100k on the clock……..

Gulp!

Looks great. Still got the merc?

Yes Christine was a Plymouth fury. :D

The merc went to make way for this beast. 

Currently lowering this one which is pretty easy. Front torsion bar wound down so she's ass up at present. Just received 2" lowering blocks for the rear.

Looking good.

Erm good job it wasn't any wider! Looks like it only just fits on the drive. Neighbors happy?  :P

I'm pretty sure the whole village hates me.

Got the rear blocks on tonight, doing it on my back was a challenge, and also terrifying lying under such a massive car. 

Terrible photos as it was dark when I finished and also hammering with rain so couldn't drag her outside.

The garage to house that thing must be the size of a house!!  Are you taking it to shows/Santa pod etc?

Yeah it's massive mate. 

I'll be at Santa pod I'm sure at some point, most likely a vw show, Big Bang, bug jam or action, as that's where my friends will be…… I'm the only yank in the group. :lol:

Lol nothing wrong with that!  Went to America for the first time last year… huge, huge cars.  I'm short but even normal sized people needed the foot platforms and hand rails to get into the SUVs.  Loved it out there in Florida

I couldn't even bring myself to give the wheels a lick of paint mate. 

It's staying exactly as is… it's taken many years to look this good.
