I told myself over and over, “No more projects!” …while spending a lot of time looking on the Internet at what was for sale. I came across this 1972 Fury III in Winona Lake, Indiana. I love the gold, the coupe, no vinyl top (and no rust concealed under it), no AC. My willpower cracked and I had to have it. It was for sale for $5000, which I thought was a bit much given the condition. The owner was selling, because he had won the car as an unexpected prize at a charity golf tournament, where he was closest to the hole on number 8. He provided many photos and was good to deal with. We settled on $4000. I considered flying to Indianapolis and driving the car from Indiana to Virginia, but thankfully reason triumphed. I had it shipped to my home by Metrogistics for $745. I thought I’d introduce the car and start a project stream. The 1st set of pictures are after my family helped me wash it.
