I've been looking around this site and have found it quite valuable. Lots of info here, Anyway....
My story....My mother bought a '68 coupe new in Phx when I was 5. It became mine when was old enough to drive. The car was never maintained very well but it did not have any rust or any major problems. It just needed a little TLC....long story short, I sold it about 17 years ago and have regretted it ever since. Even though the car was not in perfect condition it was all original (POP, build sheet, manuals, etc). Today I finally corrected my mistake and bought a #'s matching 68 vert. So everything is now right in the world again.
By the way, if the guy that bought my '68 coupe in Phx (around 44th street and Indian School road), white ext, blue int, 3 speed with a straight 6 ever comes across this post please let me know what happened to that car. I'd love to find out.
