Good news is, you can use the massive trunk as a workshop since the car will invariably take up your entire garage!

Yep, it sure looks like it's ready for the scrap heap to me [img]<<GRAEMLIN_URL>>/bs.gif[/img]

I'll bet the service mgr would have been out of a job if his boss ever found out that &quot;it wasn’t really worth them working on any more&quot;.

Cool land yacht there, Steve [img]<<GRAEMLIN_URL>>/biggthumpup.gif[/img]

Oh, and another funny story: You may notice that Simon has something of a large, flat nose. He got that as a Golden Gloves boxer in his teen years.

He met his future wife (my Gramma Rose) on the beach in Brooklyn, NY in the 1920's. She was with a gaggle of her girl friends and Simon was with a bunch of hooligans that were trying to make small talk with the ladies. Eventually the two groups combined and there was a flip of a coin between a couple of the girls (Rose being one of them) over the last two boys. Gramma Rose lost the coin toss and got stuck with Simon, the guy with the busted nose....and the rest is history.

So, in the true-est Forrest Gumpish sense, my entire family wouldn't be here but for a lost coin toss almost a century ago. [img]<<GRAEMLIN_URL>>/grin.gif[/img]

Cool car, it must be a moment for you when you are going to put on that Caution Fan sticker after fixing the engine bay.

What's that tin jar on the left inner fender doing there? Is that the A/C thing you ask about?

Actually that &quot;tomato juice can&quot; is a vacuum reservoir for the hide-away headlights and the power door locks.

The weird a/c observation is the fact that it is entirely a General Motors Harrison A/C system, and not a Ford system. It is using the GM A6 compressor and the firewall evaporator box and POA valve are the ones used by all GM cars during the 1960's and 1970's.
