Book #4 - 1970-1972 Chevelle Restoration Guide
With my third book finished, I was asked to do a fourth book. We have a finalized contract and a working title of 1970-1972 Chevelle Restoration Guide. This effort will be co-authored with Rick Nelson, owner of Musclecar Restoration and Design, so you may be assured of getting some of the best information available on restoration.
While the book will concentrate on the 1970-1972 model years, much of the same procedures and decisions you will be faced with will be applicable to all Chevelles.

Any submitted photos need to be in their original "out of the camera" form without changing or manipulating them in any way. Do not lighten, darken, add arrows, place objects, words, or boxes over the image; resize; change the extension, compression, or any other settings. No cell phone camera or tablet photos. These are my requirements from the publisher.
Contact me through my Contact link above with any questions. You, or the photographer, must have rights to grant the photo's use. I do not need the car's VIN but the assembly plant it was built at and the general timeframe, such as 2nd week of April from 04B body date on trim tag, will suffice as different plants often did things differently and some even changed during the model year run.
Samples of what can be used; note these are only reduced in size here for convenience.
