It all started in 1980 when I bought the car at an auction from a towing company. I was in the USAF at Las Vegas, NV when I decided to take up a hobby. I did not have a garage on base housing, so everything had to be cleaned up every time I finished a project.
The car was in excellent shape and only needed the lower right bottom of the front fender replaced; no other damage. The unibody was almost rust free. The bumpers and uprights were rechromed, the grill was excellent and so was all the original glass. I did install a new wiring harness, all new interior, and had the car repainted Tartan Red (RD9).
In 1985 I took it to a show at Moss Motors at Goleta, CA and got first place in my class. In 1995 I took it to an AMGA show at Peachtree, GA and got first place again!
A couple of years ago I gave the car a face lift and painted it myself. It turned out ok, but not show quality. Below is a photo from the car in my carport in Nevada.
