Interior view of this red 1972 mystery car. It's really hard to tell a GTO from a LeMans in 1972. The GTO was only an option on the LeMans in 1972, which means that it could be ordered with many LeMans options. CLICK->

Matt's got the engine done and is ready to put it back in his 1972 LeMans. He has a good heavy engine hoist. It sure beats having to pull an engine with a big chain over a tree branch. CLICK->
Here it is back in it's original resting place. Note how he has taped off the holes in the intake. That is so nothing will get dropped down in there by accident. CLICK->
It's installed and running. Looks like he has installed a set of correct-style stickers on the engine. CLICK->
