Yes- as much as I would love to do an Audio Note kit, I need to play in the sandbox first. My best analogy would be driving and crashing your first car... Better a ‘65 Belvedere (in my case) than a Porsche. BTW, I didn’t crash the Belvedere- it died of natural causes.

That Belvedere is likely worth some big bucks today  :thumb:
My buddies were into the GTO…
My parents had a '65 GOAT.  Lots of fun!

Wow, somebody had cool parents.......  8)

I am definitely my father's son!  My Dad, the old school street rodder!  My Mom liked that 389, too 👍🏼  The red stripe Firestones didn't last long...

This is what it looked like.  My Mom was all about lavender... even her hair as she got older.

Yeah... I read the ad. Mine was slightly different. Slant 225 6 cylinder, zero options. I doubt the resale value would be much above 50 bucks. I think the only thing in common would be the fenders. Maybe the cigarette lighter. It looked more like this:
