Thanks guys. I will get some pictures uploaded as soon as I can. Where I'm living now we have no internet at the moment, but maybe I can load some up on a flash drive and get them posted tomorrow on my lunch break at work.
I'm pretty excited about getting started on this car. I am anticipating it being a lot of work and want to do almost the whole car entirely in my garage. I have worked on all my own cars throughout my life, so I am pretty confident in doing this myself, however I know I will turning to here for a lot of answers and know-how from all of you and your great wisdom. My dad was big into cars when he was younger, but got out of it by the time I was born. He never really talked about his cars (78 T/A, 69 442, 69 Roadrunner, 71 Dart Demon) and his racing at Dragway 42..... lo and behold....... it must have been in the blood cause without previous knowledge of my father's conquests (when I was younger) I somehow ended up with a love of muscle cars without the encouragement. I remember building models as a child, my dad still had his from when he was a teenager and I always just wanted to restore them from being damaged throughtout the years. I think this is where it started and has not died out.
But before I ramble on to much further, I am totally excited and want to thank everyone on here. Reading everyone's posts and following your projects has brought me much joy. I love seeing these cars coming back together. I have be sitting idle on my project not knowing which way it was going to go, but now I can move forward with it.
***Thumpin, if for some reason this falls through I will PM you. The price you paid is very reasonable to what I paid for a private company. In the end, I am happy. I found the car was not stolen, I did find a bunch of parole papers in the car during the first initial cleaning...gutting. I'm wondering if at some point it was police auctioned.***
Lesson to learn from this is to be cautious about "non-titled" cars. I should of done more research on the subject before my purchase. I had car in hand and cash out of pocket before I realized the tape involved in titling a car with a lost title. However, it worked out for me..... but it could have not. For my outcome I am thankful.
