Thats an incredible job Tiaan, that GT looks brand new and in think in some ways its probably better than brand new!
Alfa GTV 3.0
Ford Capri Perana V8
Chevy Lumina Supercharged

Wait not for tomorrow to do what can be done today, live each day for one knows not what the next day may hold.

Eish, 4-speed, black interior, wheeldoppies, aircon, and all the other little detail. Probably last saw a Fern GT 30 years ago the days GT's were used to tow caravans. You've now got a perfect pair of metalic colour GT's. Nice !

Very nice Tiaan. All that accuracy and detail has produced a brilliant 'time-warp' car.

Decided not to fit the rhinos, as they were not factory, but the rest I think looks cool, also fitted last bits of chrome now just waiting for door rubbers.

Looks really cool and very original. I think you are heading for the most original GT in South Africa. Glad you didn't fit the rhinos.

I am amazed how small, especially narrow, the Fairmont's engine bay is compared to the Capri.
