    I
    befriended the guy that bought it back then and when he was ready to move on he reached out to me and made me buy it. Here’s how I found it the other day where it’s been sitting for a little too long. Obviously a lot of blanks to fill in here and I’ll start doing that soon but needless to say I’m excited at the opportunity to make sure it gets saved.:thumbsup:
    Oh and yes it has power vents.:)

    It’s a legitimate 40k mile Michigan car so it’s very crusty around the lower edges but the frame and floors are solid near as I can tell now but I need to get it inside and dried out. Engine was locked up and I’ll keep the block with it but I won’t reuse it as it’s .060 over now and needs one sleeve and it also has a crack that was repaired with the stitch method.
    Fender tag and build sheet are with it and it’s a sweet color combo.
    Very late build with auto temp.:BangHead:

    Dang!! Hard 40,000 mile life. Take inventory and save what you can, hopefully it's not too far gone and it'll run and drive again.
