This car was one of those situations when your eyes are bigger than your mouth, and I bit off more than I could chew (more like afford). I bought this car when was around 21 I guess and I thought it was the most bad ass ride I'd ever seen. I had some understanding of automotive repair and absolutely zero fear (zero sense), it was love at first sight of that Seafoam Green. I had just worked one year for the car auction which I'm still at and when this baby rolled in I knew I had to have it, I found out which dealer brought it in and when no one bid on it I asked how much? When he said $500 I couldn't get the money out of pocket fast enough. Barely running I taped up all the spark plug wires with electrical tape as they were lighting up like a Christmas tree because they were so old and slapped a dealer plate on and drove her home in all her sans exhaust glory which ended were the Y-pipe meets the firewall, the rear brake line was pinched shut because it was blown (see told you no sense). 88kms (Mississauga-Hamilton) of screaming loud hell on wheels and unbelievably not one cop to be found. For it's age and condition this car flew with it's two speed auto tranny and I loved it. Later I spent $100 and with that I got an awesome score, Front Bumper, Rear Bumper, both exhaust manifolds and front lap belts(it had no belts when I bought). A couple years go buy and realizing I could never restore do to costs and lack of proper facilities I flipped it for exactly $600 which I had into it. Here are some pics of it and some original mag adds I still have.
What's old is new
This is my place to show off the items I would call vintage, things I have either refinished or kept as is and find interesting. I am still a kid at heart bringing home what some might call junk and am always in search of that buried treasure. I am not a picker and I am not a hoarder, working with my hands on my own time repairing or refinishing the things I find brings me peace of mind and time to myself to contemplate whatever has transpired in my life or time to just zone out and concentrate on the task at hand. Some items for sale or possible trade just ask..click on my profile and send me an email.
