    I was heading back to Ky heading through WI and I stopped at a gas station. As I was pumping my gas a guy came up to me and started talking about cars. He asked if I would was interested in any late model cars. He asked if I wanted to go look at a car he wanted to sell and said that he lived about three miles down the road. So I ent to looked at it and borught it home about 4 weeks later. Its a factory manual floor shift car. Power top. Has a 400 in it right now or so I'm told. Also got an extra trunk lid, door and bumpers with the car. Sorry about the crappy pics. Took them insdie a barn close to dark.

  24. With gas the price it is and you still had enough left over to score that ragtop...good for the old days they would have washed your windshield, checked your oil and tires and then offered to sell you the you are living the dream

    I plan on swapping the car back to a 4 speed. Someone put an auto tranny in it. I already have a trans. Just need to find a bell housing and all the other goodies.

    Heay Sam. I plan on keeping it. Since my dad got his chevelle convert redone, I've been wanting another convert to drive.

    I plan on getting more pics.

    I have wanted a '64 Lemans/Tempest to hot rod for a long time. With what I want to do, a GTO would reduce the value.

    I love me some Pontiacs.

    Good score.

    I've got a BIL that would trade his daughter for one.

    And there's days my SIL would agree!
