My father-in-law built this car back in 1982. He showed it for 3 or 4 years and then parked it in the garage, and it's been going down ever since. We pulled it to our garage two years ago and started resurrecting it to it's former glory. I rebuilt the engine, installed a new TCI transmission, custom painted the frame rails, the engine, and all of the accessories to match the 80s-style paint on the car. Our hope was to have it finished prior to the local indoor MDA show in March 2008, and I finished it up the day before the show. The car was entered in the show in my father-in-laws name as his 65th birthday present.
