Gotta admit to a little curiosity about how you hid the car from your wife at your mother-in-laws.
Well funny you asked that. My son has a 1982 Z-28 that my mom and dad gave him when they passed. it is parked at my mother - in laws also. So when i went and picked my car, my wife and mama went to the doller store while i got the car running. When they came back i had it sitting in the front drive and she said i thought you were getting the brown 82 car. She said i didnt even know that was in the back garage. So mama didnt know but the wife knew all along.
My son kinda help me work on the car over the years, you know sit in the car turning the steering wheel and shifting the shifter, from age 5 to 14 he is 26 now. The reason my wife thinks i kept it a secret is i would never drive the car and that i told her i was saving it for my son.
Here within the last 1 1/2 i have gotton back into cars. Bought a 1972 4-door Chevelle with 62,000 miles on it. my Daily driver
when its not so hot out. No A/C. Bought a 72 C-10 also that im restoring over the winter. Got passenger side sheet metal all done last winter- Cab corner/ inner and outer lower door skin, rocker and partial floor, front lower front fender.Now i have to do the driver side this winter - Prime it and drive it
I have been looking for a 1966 Impala to restore, something ive always wanted. So i showed her the other day an Impala for sale for $5500.00 You could see the grass thru the trunk pan in the pictures. She said why do you want another money project when you already have a bad *** Camaro sitten in the garage. Take that money and put it into the Camaro. When i drove it home from mama house i hit myself in the head and said what are you thinking. I was grinnen from ear to ear.
So that lead me to here. ya know back in the day we didnt have the web like it is now and you either had to remember how it went back together or read it in a manual or know someone with experience. Guy's now a day's have it made with web sites as good as this one.
Thanks for listening,
