I bought this car in the spring of 1984 before I graduated high school. About two years later the transmission went out and I parked it. My dad at the time had a nice heated building and told me that a car that nice shouldn't sit out. So the spring of 1988 I loaded it up and took it to my dads where it sat there until 2016 when he passed away. It was one of the things out of site out of mind. So I brought it home and got it running but it leaked oil everywhere. The winter of 2016 I pulled the motor and transmission out. Built a nice 400 small block and 350 turbo trans and put it back together. Wow what a time capsule. The last time I drove this car I was 22 years old. My wife and I enjoy a cruise once and awhile. I'mso glad it sat at my dads for all those years because chances are I wouldn't still have it or it would have rusted in to ground.
