74,000 and this is because she sat since 84
now imagine the rest that never did sit and have been driven every single year. and they say it has 85,000 prob more like 180 or 280 as my 71 title says something like 205,000 and thats been off the road since 89-91 i think they said

Very cool!...Love the before and after post.
I'm afraid mine still looks like "before" (and it's not a four speed ???)

you want to hear something really sad, about 150 yards away is a pole barn big enough to house 10-14 cars and has always had room to fit that car in and 5 more.

Good job on the Pics Rick . I can't get over how you transformed your T/A from what it was in the unrestored photo . I guess I haven't been giving you enough credit lol

the car belonged to my uncles, buddies nephew or cousin? so we all knew it was there just forgotten about. he either bought it brand new or 1 year old.

rainman, I dont think I gave myself enough credit lol. It's hard to remember that it was a big time pos until I have the pics side by side. YUCK

but as far as everyone on here goes, I think I have gotten beyond great credit. never would have thought I would have gotten feedback like i have. It's a great feeling because it's needed to stay motivated on the car.

thanks yetti, but for me it was done pretty slow imo. I used to do full blown resto's in about 3-6 months depending on the shape and size of the car (when it was my job) now it takes about a year to make an ok driver quality car. oh well atleast its mine and i love it.

Rick I recall you had 2nd gen Hurst on one of your T/A's . Was this the one and you managed to change it to first gen? I know you mentioned it was a matter of welding a piece of sheet metal back in I believe

Well I am sure it's a minor problem with your skills . I'm not trying to find faults here ,but just curious as I remember some other posts you had from quite a while ago .
I am still amazed at how you created a master piece from where you started . Looks just wicked to me .Nice to see her brought back to her former Bandit glory
