After purchasing Her brand new in 1985. My Mom's "lil Baby" Finally was laid to rest in the driveway before They moved. She hadn't been driven for almost two full years, when I got an un-expected text from Mom. It bascially said if you would like Her she is yours. I thought to myself, what is Mom talking about. :4-dontknow: I text Her back and she said look in your trunk tomorrow. When I got done with work, I popped the trunk and all of a sudden it hit Me. "she" was now mine. Let The Rebuild Begin!!!!!!!!!!!!!!






More pics are on the way as soon as she arrives. Followed by the complete over-haul pics. Stay Tuned.....................................

So I got the Ol Girl home yesterday. After about a 75mile trip, there was no smoke, no leaks. Engine ran great. Transmission is tight and the running gear is solid. Whew! Looks like a cosmetic rebuild. Here's some more pics.










Stay tuned............................:D
