20 Year Plan
I guess this story will sound familiar to alot of you out there....
Married in 1988, sold 1967 corvette 4 spd air conv to buy first house, had $5,000 left over and an empty garage. Figured I better fill the garage before that 5k turns into a dining room set, so I grabbed the paper and found a#'s matching 69 pace car for $4,000. Drove it home and began the restoration. The car needed quarters, front fenders outer wheel wells and the drivers front floor pan.The rest of the car was complete and solid.Bought new GM quarters for $235ea and GM fenders for $194ea.(should have bought two or three sets!)
Spent the next year or two doing all the metalwork,got the car primered and restored the engine,trans,suspension.
Then along came my son, which required a larger house according to the wife. The car ended up in storage at my mother's houes and before I knew it 15 years went by. I didn't have the space or the $ to continue on the car so I just let it sit knowing someday I would get back to it.Well in 2006 I built myself a 24x 40 shop and brought the car home.
I took the car completely apart and started over and it is now painted and reassembeled minus the interior and top. I might just get to drive it this summer after almost 20 years!
Thanks to everyone who contributes to this site for all the help and great info.
