    Bought the car in 2006 as a "done" car. Made a few changes, but basically just drove it until June 2008 when I was hit head on in the car. The resurrection has been a slow process due to having Titus build the blue Tudor for me and buying the roadster in the meantime. I hope to have this car back on the road way better than before by spring 2016.

    I had my eye on this car for 17 years, it was oxy acct hammer welded by the fellow who owned it and he never finished it due to health problems, three weeks before he passed away he sold it to me.[ oops, I inserted this olds pic and don't know how to get rid of it]
