Project HQ GTS tribute build update #10

Our Project GTS body is looking so good, thanks to the great work of Bendigo Retro Muscle Cars, we think it's the best shell we've had on a project car so far. That's a big call, considering the rest of them were so good. The next step is to visit Top Torque in Melbourne to see the progress on the GTS' 355 cubic-inch V8 engine...
