Well, we've made another small step. After the show Robin is now on the charge to have our 68 on the road. We've never really checked the car out much as its been buried in the barn for prolly 15 years. So today (at 96 degrees...)we got into the barn an unburied the 68, aired up the tires, tow strapped to the tractor and pulled her up to the garage. We're taking pics along the way and if i can figure out how I'll post sum. I had forgotten how much junk I'd stored inside it, guess if I havn't needed it for this long its trash. I didn't have much time left, but sprayed off years of barn dirt and kinda looked it over. Actually looks ..well...not SO bad. will get it cleaned out this week hopefully and into the garage on stands for further inspection. will keep any of ya interested updated as we go....wheeee!!

Well....I drove the tractor and tried to convince Robin to get in the car to steer it...however, she opted out on that one and decided the car was simply too gross inside to get in. She walked along side of it steering it through the drivers window the 1/4 mile up the road and up to the garage. (doubt I'd have gotten in myself) [img]tongue.gif[/img]

That would have made a good picture for the newsletter.

Ill admit Im usually not into so much painted interior, but that looks good, I like it. I think the steering wheel and some of the other billet trim make it work. I suppose usually when I see painted interior pieces its on a beat up ricer that I have to do an oil change on lol, so maybe ive had a bad taste from that. Keep up the good work
