Bought the car in '92. Engine was out (tri carb-frozen)but tranny left in. It is a complete car except for the exhaust. In '97 I trailered it from Dayton OH. to Seattle WA where it sat for two additional years. In late '99 I trailered it back to Ohio so I guess you could say she's a trailer queen! In 2007 I was finally able to build myself a shop (26x40) and am now in the process of working on the old girl. I have, to date, striped the car down to chassis and frame. Taught myself to weld sheet metal (not an easy job) and have replaced a lot of rust either with purchased pieces or home made. I have completed a rotisserie and soon should be able to work on the rusted frame parts. It's a lot of dirty work but what else does a 65 year old retired (twice) person have to do
