unfortunately there is some bad endcap dents in rear...super costly to fix and why the initial investment was so low, so that is why we can violently hurl money at her right now. She sat in the same storage for over 15 years, but was thankfully started and ran every month.
i am a slave to this beauty.
I love her so much I'd polish her 4x over with a toothbrush and love every minute. i get the warm fuzzy feeling just thinking of her.
i read this forum like a bible, and cannot thank you guys enough for this information...
we are working full time to get her reliable. this forum is invaluable!
