Early wedding present! (He forgot about my wedding present.) I purchased this car for my husband about 6 months before we got married. All I kept hearing was I want a 70 Chevelle. We found this in the Indiana Auto and RV after months of looking. Loaded the trailer on the back of the truck, I grabbed a book and my laptop. We left early saturday morning and we were off for Michigan. 300 miles each way. We got to the guys house, and there wasn't one or two cars, there was way more, he had a big barn/garage with more in it. He said his wife told him they had to go. $6,000 and the Chevelle was being loaded onto the trailer. As they talk the info comes out this had been a drug siezed car. All of the work had been done except for the interior. Which isn't all that bad.
I helped pick out the seat covers that are in it. Roadrunner and Wile E Coyote. He doesn't know yet even after the new interior those seatcovers stay in the car. For his birthday the boys (both teens) talked me into giving them money for a Wile E Coyote stuffed animal to sit in the back seat. My husband seat belted it in.
I named the car "The Bitch" even though he says it is a boy because SHE gets more attention. He is nicer to HER. He talks to the stupid car.
91 Thunderbird Supercoupe 5 speed.
