About “Tit's”

i cannot take credit for building the car, only owning it. I am the 4th owner, i bought it from a best friend who could no longer drive it due to a foot amputation. He bought himself a 2004 SSR with an automatic with the cash i paid him. He bought the car in 76' from the 2nd owner who had the body modified in a shop in lancaster ny (my home town). The 2nd owner had it done in 72'. My friend the 3rd owner took very good care of the car while he owned it, changed the paint every 6-7 yrs just for grins. He never drove the car in rain (no wipers) and it stayed stored mostly till summers in western ny, and came out on weekends. He couldn't keep the car when he lost his foot, and could not give it to his children as he had 2, and couldn't split the car in half, so selling it to me was the agreed upon answer he and his kids came up with as they considered me like family. i bought it in june 04'. Sadly, my friend passed away last yr in may 06'.

Originally a pale yellow 289ci automatic coupe.

I cut off the original hardtop and can either bolt it back on, install the custom vinyl top, or have her go topless.
