    Howdy all...found your site by accident yesterday while looking for VIN decoders...anyway just had to join in on the fun! :D
    I would have never guessed there was a site just for us 'Chero owners.
    I aquired mine about 3 years ago from a guy in Acworth, GA. for 600.00!...and drove it to my shop!
    I've been puttin time and $$$'s in when I can find them since
    I'm new at this site so I'm going to try and post some pics of her.

    Nice find! I would have bought it.

    Maybe one of the mods can fixup your links -- each has an extra "http://" on the front.

    the only other problem was someone did some absolutely attrociouse body work on her before...They just filled in dents w/bondo...there must have been a gallon on her!
    I chizeled and sanded on her for a month to get that crap off of her, and 95% of the dents I was able to just "pop" out or use a slide hammer.
    I've actually have it ready for paint, but haven't decided on a color...I LOVE the color of Sarah's 72!...and since mine was originally red to begin with....

    Mine is a AZ car, but I found the floor has rust holes as well as the bottom rear corners of both doors. They all have their share of surprises though, don't they:cool:

    Hey Paul,
    That they do!
    they also did some "creative wireing to the harness...took me while to figure that out!...
    the only thing I could'nt salvage was the tail gate...mine lookes almost just like youres!...it's even bashed in in the exact same spot!:(
    luckily the bumper was somehow missed
    I'll look around the site for a tailgate:confused:

    Thank you Warren and yes its nice to see another 72. Beware... these boys are being nice right now... but they secretly don't like the 72's LOL :D

    Red is painted 96 Ford Laser RED Pearl... with raspberry pearl instead of gold just in case you wanted to know :D You have a great start there. My question is.... what where who and did you put that motor in your avatar picture in something? That sure is a beautiful piece of machinery right there... I'm just sayin'

    hey Sarah
    I pulled it,cleaned it, built it ,and put it back in with a fresh "factory" shift kit in the FMX myself...and that's what's in the Chero!
    The pic of the Firebird is BEFORE I started the resto....I had a good canvas to work with:)
    Here's what she looks like today[​IMG]

    Welcome to the crazy site, as they say a lot here dosn't like the 72, but no vorries they are just envious :cool:
    Looks like you have a nice one there and the firebird is nice, has a friend who had a cab, very nice:D

    My 72 "S" code has no rust at all and just a few small dents, and only 3 small dents in the bed so i'm very happy. But I payed 6000$ for it so you did a very good buy.
