    Haha well that's a great story and I'm sure the wife will understand one day.. In the mean time, keep on keepin on and it'll all pay off..

    This is a family car from day one. Bought in Germany by Uncle in Air Force and returned with him state side after tour was up, then willed to grandfather upon original owners passing, and then sold to me for $1. Best dollar I ever spent, but the wife doesn't understand she just sees the first of many being spent. Imagine that :-) LOL

    Jon: You've got a real treasure on your hands. Hope you have many years of enjoyment as the vehicle's new caretaker.

    Sweet! I've seen barn finds, and saw the cars on the farm, but this is sweet. Was it a word of mouth find or did you just happen to come across it? Please swing by to check out my rides and rate them.
