About “pops”

my dad gave me this car before he passed away in nov of 07. dont know much about corvairs but im ready to learn.
its a white convertible with white top and red interior.

About “Monte 72”

This is my 1972 Monte Carlo. This is not a high optioned car, 2bbl, 350, T350 on column, bench seat, but not only is it mine, it used to be mine.
This is the exact car that my wife and I had our first date in May of 1975, I sold the car in September of 1976 and my wife bought it back for Christmas of 2006, so I am the second and forth owner of this car.
Unfortunately the car has sat outside for the last 30 years and needs a complete restoration.
I am doing a frame off restoration and have been working on the car for the last 14 months, have close to 550 hours and $5,000 in parts invested so far.
This isn't a rare or high option car but has a bunch of sentimental value.
