Purchased in 1981 near Topaz Lake, NV., I drove it for about a year and then parked in 1982 in my parents back lot in Carson City. As it sat, many people tried to buy it, but my parents always said no. Eventually someone broke in and stole the cowl induction and carb setup. (I had a padlock in the hoodpin) After that I moved it to Reno where my good friend Jed had some space and kept it in his garage and made sure it didn't get rusty. Sam Cook rebuilt the tranny back in the mid 90's and then Garran Soohoo at Nitro Street Rods in Reno rebuilt the motor and got it running again in 2005.
