Dad's Toy

I thought I might share some photos and projects on my '82 280 Classic. My mom and dad owned this AS for about 20 years. They are gone now and my Dad's toy has become my toy!

Last weekend, I installed a new counter top, sink and faucet in the bath. Also installed a new cooktop and have been working on my new entertainment center.

Your dad is quite proud of you and I can tell you that he has a perpetual smile on his face.

Nice mods too. You are carrying on the tradition.

One of my 5 kids is a candidate to do the same for me with my 66 Tradewind.

Beautiful Classic. Thanks for posting the photos. It's hard to believe it's almost 30 years old.

Great job on keeping your Dad's, & your toy alive.

Love the vessel sink in your bath. We have been thinking of doing that on our 310. Did you lower the counter top or leave it the same height? If you did keep it the same height, does it feel like it to high or just right.

Great job and look forward to more of your projects on Dad's toy.
