History
I was the caretaker to this car in the early 2000's since the guy who owned it didnt know much about them. I kept tabs on it when I went off to college and after. The guy who owned it had 'trouble' with it and not being a car guy either, parked it in a barn to let it rot. About 8 years later in 2010, I ran in to him and was able to buy it. A bad starter and adjusting points later and it was running. My wife and I drove it for about 5 years and 15k miles until it was parked so I could build the convertible for my dad.

In 2016, I started work on the current version of the car. A little less than 3 years, multiple changes, 1000's of hours later and it's running and driving!
