There is a member here (Rick Rinsche) that is in the Visitor's Rides that has the look I'm going for on the Father/Son project. Here it is:

I wish ours had the '79 grill and lights, but I guess I'll play the cards I was dealt....

Shouldn't be too hard to piece together a 78-79 front end really....

I like the way that car sits, yours should look just as nice.

I've always thought this car looked good :D I noticed he had it up for sale recently :(

You're lucky to have a '79 as opposed to '78, the '78 and '80 grilles aren't repro'd currently, but the rest are. I look forward to seeing this finished :D

I always kinda liked the 4 head light style cuz then you could remove the two inner ones and run your intake to them like ram air style and as an added bonus they make billet grilles for those front ends as well but not for the two head light ones
