Just finished having this event for the first time over the weekend and it was a great success! We had almost 70 cars show up during a 100+ degree heat wave. Here is a link to an album with some of our favorite pictures included.

The 71 HT is very cool - I've been looking for one of these for years.

The louvers - seen a lot of them at Canby as well this year. It's a classic hot rod touch for sure.

Thanks Byron … that was my latest 4 year project. I never really made a build thread, but it's airbagged on shortened 510 struts, and just airshocks in the back. It was the first car I ever painted, so it's not perfect, but I couldn't be happier with how it turned out. I only know of 3 710 Hardtops in California.

Indy, great to hear from you. I had no idea this was your car - looks great.
Honestly I don’t think I’ve seen a 710 hard too in over 25 years. The last one I saw in person was in a field and had early bumpers indicating it must have been a 72 or was imported from ???? It was LHD, so it wasn’t JDM. Very cool, do you som more interior shots? It looks like you’ve added your own touch to the seat covers?
