Gave the big old girl a new home

Illustration for article titled Gave the big old girl a new home

You can tell she was a retired mechanics car since the ball joints are cleaner than the windshield. Everything mechanical is new and shiny and the body looks like it hasn’t been touched beyond a quick soak with a hose in the past 38 years. There even some brushed on Tremclad to hide the blemishes.


Driving her home felt like floating on a cloud, the 425ci V8 barely whispering at 80mph and only the lightest touches of the wheel and brakes to alter its course.

Some easy sanding and a lick of paint topped with some new vinyl and it’ll be just as she was in 1978.
