  • my Whiskey-Tango-Foxtrot-what-have-I-bought restoration project...

  • My grandson and chief helper!

  • The rebult interior

  • A long way from when I bought her...

A Dec 2013 EBay purchase. Body was rust-free, but the rest was original, old, and needed replacing. Interior a mess.

By June 2015 I had it running (for the first time in 28 years!) with new: Petronix Flamethrower, Facet fuel pump, SS brake lines, rebuilt front & rear brakes, new seats, new interior carpet, dash spray-painted, a coverlay, new Cooper tires, and a modern radio.Wire wheels sandblasted & repainted. Halogens, new front-rear running & brake lights. New radio & speakers. Carbs rebuilt w/new fuel lines. Drained and refilled brake & clutch lines w/new fluid.

August 2015: Commuting 160 miles weekly to work; mostly PA Turnpike. approx 31MPG. New headgasket. LED's make night driving much easier and hopefully safer.

Oct 2016: Painted Blue Angel Blue (an awesome job by Maaco, Ewing, NJ!). Lots of awesome compliments and 'back in the day' stories.

Oct 2016-current. She's now my daily driver; 80 miles R/T day to campus and back. Will be putting a yellow strip fore-aft; The usual awkward electrical issues, most wires and connections working lose, but hey; that's just part of the ambiance! Cheers //
