Look What Followed Me Home

So when you're slightly compulsive the way I tend to be, it's really helpful to have a very understanding wife. Of the course the fact that she likes T-Birds was a big plus.

Sorry about the crappy pictures, but this was the best I can do with the tight space I had to cram the car into. This is a survivor with 52K original miles. With the exception of the tires and the other wearable parts it's 100% original. It's got a couple minor body issues. The interior is immaculate. Unfortunately it's not a tri-power, but I guess I can live with that. I bought this from the original owner, it's been parked in her garage since 1979. Never been driven in the winter. And I even got the promo model that Ford gave out with the car.

Cram? What happened to all the space in that big arse shop you built??

Neat car, but what's the "Z" code mean, to us un-educated?

Yup, that guy, the hooligan.

Somewhere out there is a tree, tirelessly producing oxygen so you can breathe. I think you owe it an apology.

390 4v. And some dumb ass has filled all that space with cars and parts. I don't save old newspapers and empty pizza boxes, but I may have a problem. :bloated:

That's nice! Somewhere in the 67-69 range, my mother had a used '62 with the 390 and it was a fantastic car. I still have to see the side of them, though, to distinguish 61, 2, and 3 from one another.

My buddies F100 that he bought new. '75 I think. He lives right next door to where my new office is. I give him free storage and he does odd jobs for me like plowing the driveway. And he's a heluva body man. Spend a fair amount of time in his garage drinking beer and making fun of Chebbys.
