To this day, it boggles my mind how well that car held up. Did you ever know the history of her?

Its been in my family since it was built. My grandmother owned it for most of its life, I bought it, essentially restored it...well brought back the shine, did a whack of repair work to it, then sold it to Paul. But I consider Paul as family so...its still in the family

He has been doing a pretty good job of maintenance too, needs a new heater core, but thats it.
