My new to me '64

Thank you for allowing me to join. After seeing this 64 in a neighbors driveway covered for many years I finally got the chance to ask him about it. Turns out it was time for him to sell it after having it for 20 years.

Good job rescuing her and getting it back on the road. It makes me SICK seeing guys that cling to cars because they're "gonna fix it up one day". Are ya!?

There is a guy in my hometown with a '64 SS convertible that has been sitting in his carport for years with "NO" written on the windshield in huge letters. I guess he's biding his time. For what, who knows.

Thanks everyone. I told myself I would never again p[as sup a car I saw just sitting. Suppose the worst they could say was no. Guess I got lucky when I saw him walking his dog!

Followed the posted pic to your flicker library and saw some more shots of your 64. I had some Krager SS wheels like that back in the 80's That was a long time ago, when I was thinner and had hair... ;D

I can relate to both the thinner and had hair as well! Unfortunately those rims have seen better days. Time for an upgrade.
