all right all right....i always wanted a mid year and never really looked for one.......i always had a C4 or a C5 and at the time i have both....then on saturday i am at work reading the paper(great job i have)and i see a 65 roadster project car for $9000 firm...........i grabbed the phone and called...a lady answered and i asked a few questions.....i asked if it was complete?? she said yes.....then i asked if it run?? she said of course.....then she said she thought it drove even......i ran right over and looked at it......when i first seen it my heart pounded....i seen the 427 badges on the hood...and i got instant WOOD!!!!!!! but it is and was a small block car....so i made a lowball offer and he upped it a bit.......we finally agreed on 6750.00 cash.....and i had a tow truck pick it up......the owner said he never drove it at all ...he trailered it only to a brake shop and a exhaust shop.....so sunday morning my 11 y/o daughter says lets go cruise it....i started it up and then drained the gas and changed oil......checked it out for safety things and off we went for a 1/2 hour drive......it drives like a 38 year old car:surprised :surprised but not to bad.... the muncie linkage wont let me into first gear......but it has enough poop to start in second no problem.....all the gauges and speedo and tach all work perfectly........after the 1/2 hour drive the temp was at 210 and when i shut her off in the driveway she decided to puke all the nasty coolant on the ground......i cant blame her tho...she hasnt been licensed since 1991........any more questions ...i will answer a little sooner this time:thumbsup: :thumbsup:
