    I thought it would be bought and flipped, so I am glad to see you with it Chet!
    Thanks Jeff believe me the money scares me too but it was such a great deal I couldn't pass it up...im hoping it won't be that bad? After doing more research on the car it gets even better...the story goes, it sat in a garage for 15 years and some one has already done all the hard parts of the restoration / quarters floors etc..the guy I bought it from put all new rotors / drums brake lines and gas lines fuel pump etc..it's a numbers matching 351C 4V and it's has factory a/c power steering...after seeing what they are going for all done I don't think we can loose??? At least I'm hoping not....you should come to our CarBBQ and check it out...?

    There is no way you can lose bro!!!

    I would love to come but we have a cookout with my father inlaws retirement place to attend and with his current health, we can't miss it. If you do one next year, I will try to be there Chet, would love to come up.

    Hey Mark ,

    I wish I did sorry ....Unfortunately I haven't had time to touch it, with kids sports and work plus working on other peoples projects it has taken a back seat at the moment. I want to do the car right for Jen, don't want to rush through just to get it done?? The plan for now is to get our Mavrerick ready so she has something to drive and then finish our 93 Lx this spring. Maybe sell it over summer and put funds towards her car. Don't need two projects going at once.....

    Well since Mark reminded my wife about her car (JK Mark) here is an update....The fun part of taking it apart. found a little more rust than expected but nothing I havent been through before. I ordered all the sheet metal today and it should be here by the end of the week..It looks like th car has been painted a couple times but the original color was white. Either way its staying black with red strips to match our other car..So this is the begining and hope to have more updates as the weather gets warmer in the up coming weeks..

    One good thing is the car has all brand new rotors, drums and brakes new fuel lines and sending unit in the tank. New floors quarters Etc.

    The one thing I found that really pissed me off (mostly because I missed it and the thought that anyone could do this and think it was safe) the floor support on the pasenger side was spray foam and bondo...SOME people should not work on cars ...!!! All in ALL its a really GREAT start and much better than some of the other cars I looked at. Really looking foward to making some progress....
