About “LT”

I had my eye on this car for quite awhile before I got the chance to buy it. It had been sitting in somebodys yard for ten to fifteen years. When the neighbors started complaining I got the car for $100. I guess he figured he'd be better off getting a little bit of money for the car instead of letting the city tow it off. He thought the motor and tranny were shot, and couldn't find the keys or title. We dragged the car home and found the title inside (it was quite a mess and full of all kinds of junk) and the original paperwork under the back seat. Replaced the ignition, battery, and drained and added gas, oil, and tranny fluid. It started up and drove. I have since had to replace the transmission, but you can't beat it for a hundred bucks!
