Short DescriptionI've mostly restored this car. Well, a friend has with me giving the occasional hand. It's mechanically as new and rust free. Optically it's not all there yet.
It's meant as a fast cruiser, a car for fun trips and for driving holidays. It is not intended as a track toy or as a garage queen. It was my intention to keep it as stock-looking as possible.
