it was my grandparents car. they bought it in the early 70'* and parked it when they moved in 1979. Its hasn't been out of the garage at their house for the past 30 years. Of course I got a hell of a deal on it since it was family.

I tried to get it running when I got it home and it has no spark. That'* as far as I got with it. If I get time this winter I'm going to try to get it running. It'* not going to be driveable for some time though. Will need floor/trunk pans (the existing ones are pretty weak) rockers replaced ( came with a NOS set) and the lower qtrs replaced. Of course all the brakes and everything else will need to be gone thru since it was sitting for 30 years.
