About “little red”

I just got this car, and I love it! I needed a car to have fun with since my 1962 Bel Air wagon was destroyed by a drunk kid in a stolen truck last year. I saw it in a gas station with a for sale sign in it, went and asked about it, took it for a test drive, and wrote a check. It isn't what I expected to get, but I'm glad I got it! I still want to replace my wagon, but it isn't as urgent any more.

About “The Convertible”

Our Families car.

My dad used to have a 66 GTO convertible glacier greenish blue, he sold it the day my mom and him got married for 850 bucks. the insurance company told him to!!

ever since he has kicked himself,

my uncle and him found this tempest convertible and had to go in on it partner style.

later for unforseen circumstances my dad "acquired" my uncles half of the car but we all still drive it.

i drove it to my future wifes prom and later to our wedding,

my dream honeymoon was to cruise route 66 and go to detroit for the woodward dream cruise.

maybe someday :)




But now i'm divorced and you can see a picture of my beautiful girlfriend standing in front of the car at one of our favorite Karaoke bars

Original spare tire and jack in the truck with instructions sticker under the deck lid

UPDATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

found some old ORIGINAL (early 70's) Bias ply good year polyglas tires in an old shed. GREAT SHAPE!!!

they're a little big so i had to put spring spacers in the front and rear with some air shocks in the back.

i love the look of the car a LOT better now.

i also found an original radio off EBAY and installed that.

great fun car.
