History
Bought in 2005, pay no attention to the dates on the pics, my camera has never had the date set right (kids) :) Car is pretty much done now as of 2012. I never intended to do a stock restoration, nor a wild custom. Nor was I in a hurry to finish it, I enjoyed the journey! I only wanted a sleek car with modern suspension, strong engine, strong drive train along with a spotless presentation. All within a modest budget. I am the only person who works on my cars & this car has not only tought me patients but how to dress busted knuckles. LOL. Despite my standards for cleanliness, I drive this thing, I drive, I clean & I drive it some more. You know the drill.....
