*** Not a TA, but our other project car ***
« on: March 29, 2010, 05:07:29 PM »
This is the Z that Frank bought last year right after having surgery on his shoulder.  Our boys and Frank worked on it for months, but then came along my TA.  I searched for months for new/used bumpers, and finally found them along with lights and the grille.   Not easy finding parts for this car.

 So this project has been put on the back burner for a wee bit until Frank finds another job WHICH I hope is  REAL SOON!!
Keep saying those prayers!

Our youngest son, who is sitting on the car will get this when he graduates High School.

It will be some time before this one is done.  I need to find a new floor pan for it.  Lots of rust on her, but she purrrrs like a kitten.  Sad, how cars can get like this and yet the engine runs great!
