That's a good find, and a good buy! I frequent the Iwanna paper, also. Best dollar I spend a week.

I Really like the Blue, and Agree Nice buy 8)  Are you keeping the Bumper Bull Bar, and do you have any pics of how it is installed???  Have been looking for one for my truck, but I can't find a '73-80(Thinking of just Fabbing one!)..

As stated, that caprice hood ornament really actually looks good. Different stands out and I wouldn't change a thing!
