I can appreciate most any car, but the originality of one is what really stands out to me. Especially when ALL of the original documentation is there! As I said previously, there's very little on mine not original. I've changed the outside mirror, battery, & water pump. I don't remember anything else, but since discovering the TC & CRG forums, I need to recheck a few minor things like the rad., voltage reg. & master cylinder for my own peace of mind.
As a curious side note, on the original order form, it shows (handwritten on the form) the following factory installed items being removed and replaced by the dealer: F70 white letter tires; wheel covers; & am/fm radio. Replaced with: std. blackwalls; dog dish hub caps; & am only radio. Mom never told me why, & and I never pressed it. Likely, it was something she cooked up to save a few bucks. I figured, what the heck, I still have the car! In retrospect, it's kinda hard to seriously bitch about it very much. Mom was still a cool chick
Wish she was still around to see it now.
Thanks for the kind words and welcome from everyone!!
Y'all take care,
