About “Papa Smurph”

This is my first car. Others have come and gone, but Papa has been with me since high school. I restored him with my boyfriend at the time, and we had so much fun doing it, I married him!

About “Comet 202”

My father purchased this car back in 1992 or so. It was in great shape, but just a sleepy little old lady car.
