History
My parents bought this car for my 16th Birthday. It has been our project car ever since, but college got in the way of our progress and we did not have the time or money to continue so she was benched. Now that I have a job and some extra money, we are picking up the project and are getting her on the road. The car had two owners before me. The previous owner let her sit outside for two years so there is considerable rust damage on the body. We are currently getting the body patched and panels replaced before a brand new paint job. It will then never miss a sunny day!
