This car has been mentioned before on this forum, but there have been no developments. He definitely has the Bonneville goods with the ELC struts, 3800, rust, Autolite 104s, even the same-size blower motor, and so on. On 9-20-07, some days after we hung out to take all these pictures, I made this .zip file with all the pictures of the car from when he first got it to some developments in cleaning it.
By the way, this friend is James, the guy who worked with me vigorously several times to keep my car running. It was like a Nascar pit stop almost every time, but instead with radiator swaps, fluid flushes, etc. In most of the pictures, he'* dressed in his IT clothes since we used to work together.
