so i just finished up the 63 Cadillac that i built for my wife, more or less. I'm cruising through the morning ritual of the surfing the net , hamb, craigslist,lbcc, etc and come across a 60 chevy wagon. i sent an email and get no response. send another one 2 days later, same deal. so i decide to call the dude, kind of pissed. if you sold your shit then at least remove it or have the respect to email me back. he still has it and is talking to a guy in California about it. i go look at the supper clean no rust kingswood, buy his description. of course when i get there and inspect i see a few rust holes right away. but knowing that these are getting harder to find i forge on. the floors are rusted through in just about every well. I've seen way worse. but not supper clean like described, but are they really ever? after pointing the rust out to the guy, and informing him that if he where to send this mid west car to the cali guy, he'd more then likely have a cali visitor really soon, as for cali standards this is junk. i get home and show my wife the pics. she absolutely has to have it. try to explain to her the amount of work it needs, but you can fix it! like trying to talk to a walll. she sees the final result and has to have it. she already has a name "helen", so with the push from the wife i work out a deal, and go get it. it has been sitting in a field since 96' and has had allot of creatures living in it. had my son helping clean it out, untill he ran into a mouse skelton. first stop was the car wash. $15 bucks later motor cleaned up pretty well. got it home and did some more scrubbing and got the moss that was growing on the car removed. nice patina. pulled the interior,and inspected the floors. dash is uncut, not one wire has been wire tapped or cut and fixed with some form of tape. amazing shape. had a good buddy come over and spent about 1 hr messing with rigging up a fuel tank, roll her over a few times by hand, check spark, hot damn this ol thing may run. give it some ign. a few sputters and little fire later she is puring along. a little lifter clatter, some smoke and in about 2 mins shes smoothin out. wounder if the trans is any good. set the emergency brake there's reverse. hot damn. rebuilt the brake system and drove it to lunch after owning it for 4 days. trans was shifting hard. pulled the drive shaft to find out there no rubber left in the center support bearing! rebuilt the drive shaft and now it much better.
