A bad day Drag Racing is still better than a good day at work!

I am still hunting for a project car to build but with my current low budget it's not looking so good. My Ex- Fleet of Sixes these are all long gone! :bang: 1954 Customline 223 3 speed with O/D, 1963 Fairlane project drag car with BB6, 1977 Maverick 250 with C4, 1994 F-150 a 300 with 5 speed.

So what color is it got a picture of an area where it wasn't masked good (and the door tag) or an area under the weather stripping?

Those would be the two main ones (do the numbers match on the Vin and Jam Tag?) There are some hidden ones with only the Vin number. Medium Lime Metallic would be a code I sometimes you can find a build seat under seat, carpet or back window side panel etc. Mine is a 77 (LT Green) it has the tag on the door and the Vin is on dash.
