History
Had her for 2 years and got her running, stopping, licensed and tagged. Working on repairing some rust, such as in the rear deck and driver side hood hinge area. After 6 years and other distractions, I'm having some time to work on body and engine systems more.
9890.jpg This was the car before doing bodywork. The engine was working, but the fuel rail was leaking. So I had to get busy.

Won't be on the road for a while, but so nice to hear her running again.
