    Square birds rule, what peaks my interest are those little gauges on the bottom right. That could mean several things...

    Caught my eye. especially the 'Motor Minder' (vacuum gauge) next to the amp gauge. Think this one belonged to an old man. Is there an altimeter too?

    As if there is any doubt in your mind whether it's worth all that hassle.........



    The first time you get one of them running it's bring a smile to your face like none other.


    Good luck on your trip and hope to see pics real soon
    (Video of them running would be cool too)

    Yes you have to get them, even if one is a T-bird. Hard to match that Riviera of yours. BTW if you're moving cars a ways, I've had great experiences with Safe-Way Auto Transport, out of KY. Moved my truck from Marfa to Maine right on schedule at the right price. And have a look at www.autoliterate.blogspot.com sometime. Enjoy the beach.
