Nice Surprise and a Little Progress

First off the Surprise!!

I bought my Tempest from a buddy. Making me the third owner. He just never had the time or funds to do what he wanted with it. He said he had some of the paperwork for it and would try and find it.

Well he finally did! Original bill of sale, registration, protecto-plate, inspection certs (VA State Police 1968 to 1988), owner plan/warranty and owner's manual!

Needless to say I'm pretty jazzed! The original owner didn't do to bad trading in his 54 Coupe DeVille, he got $627.51 for it!

And yes (crappy phone) Pics!

And finally some progress!

Paint, body and metalwork done! Well almost done, a couple things left for the painter to touch up but will be done after assembly.

And yes it's Purple! Why? Cause I like to be asked "WTF were you thinking??" I have issues like that.

It's finally getting there! I can stop being depressed reading everyone else's stories about their progress and getting them finished and on the road!!!

Once again crappy phone pics! Gonna get some better ones here in a week or two hopefully.

What is the brand/name of that purple?
I always painted my bikes purple when I was a kid, and keep toying with doing that to my Lemans.
Thanks,
Russ
