Where to start...
I bought this car in 1981 when I was 19... Needless to say I could not afford driving it so I sold it to my dad who drove it several years but then got annoyed with the frequent things to fix so he put it in storage.
For 27 years. Two years ago as the storage place was damaged from heavy snowfall, the car had to come out. So my 86 year old dad asked me for help to get rid of the car. We brought it to the very same place where it was maintained 30 years prior and after a few manipulations, the car started! Needless to say my dad didn't want to get rid of it anymore, so he gave it to my own son who is just as car nuts as I am. So for the last year and a half, we have been spending time and $$$ on trying to revive it. It had bad shock tower and some floor rust. Since we can not locate replacement panels this far in Eastern Quebec, we have done the best we could... Now we are on to mechanical parts. New bushings, new brakes and fuel lines, new suspension, rebuilt calipers, and the list goes on... I think the car could be on the road in the 2021 summer...
