here it is on the day I picked it up around 1997 or so. bought this thing for 500 bucks. did some minor work to it, and drove it from my duty station to home every other weekend. about 200 miles 1 way I went to restore it in 99, but ended up finding my convertible instead. November 1999, I drove my first born home from the hospital in it. shes been down since 2000 or so. so my sons 18th is coming up next week, and I decided its time to get on this one. for his b day, I contracted a buddy to do some panel replacements. then my son paid for the sand blasting. here are before pics and current pics. his job for the next week is black oxide extraction.
