About “Fairlane”

A 1968 Fairlane, my dad's first car. Due to being terminated from his job in the early 90's, and the engine of the car wearing out, he was forced to park the car for several years. After life had become more stable, me and him went to work on the car, restoring it to it's former glory. The car is now half mine and half his, so It's my first car too. It has taken seven years to get it to this point. A little bit of work was put into it, and gt rims from a torino were put on for their good looks.
