After my father sold his Cobra kit car when I turned 16, my dream of owning and building a 1970 Chevelle went out the door. The goal was to get his car back! I acquired my kit from Factory Five in September of 2011, it came as a bare frame and after an entire summer of pounding away on the car, it was finished right before our first snow in 2012. Pretty proud to say I even got the old man to help get the car into a rolling chassis in my garage. I hope to keep it and pass it onto my kids after they turn 30.
