Diamond In The Rough — This was my first car. I was young and dumb when I let it go way back then. This one won't get away quite that easily. I'm new to messing with Classic Cars, so this will be a learning process for me. update; And what I'm learning is, that it's EXPENSIVE. Know what you're getting into before you start. My frame was rotted out on this car along with the entire bottom floor pans. that was quite an expensive repair. It's painted and being trimmed out now. Should be ready to drive next summer. In retrospect, I would have simply waited for what I want to come up for sale. They always do, and it would have saved me 10 - to 15 thousand dollars.....no kidding.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: It's a great blank canvas to start a project with....it's all there, and it's rare.

Cons: Low desirablility in the CC Community, but the rarity adds to it's appeal for me.

Was Fast, But Cornered And Braked Terrible. It Had The 289hp Engine Done Right Up. — steel dash with a chrome tach. Looked pretty hot. Loud and proud, as I ran headers with no pipes or mufflers most of the time.

Pros: Came with Doug Nash five speed  and plenty of power.

Cons: drum brakes all around. Needed a large cash investment to restore it.
