Well as promised here are a few pics of the Lemans the same day I picked it up. Needless to say she drove well on the way home. Lots of power still left in her. I took her to the body shop the same day and thats were the fun really begins. I will post more pics later.

1St Round of Pics While at the Body Shop.

As you will see we really start to see what was covered under the primer. The first round of pics isn't that bad. The second round is a different story.

A few more 2nd trip photos

I know there will be more surprise down the way but I gues this is what part of the hobby is all about. In the end what I want is a 71 Lemans that I can pass down to my son knowing that it will be a solid vehicle for him to enjoy just as much as I have.

Yep, you have rust in all the usual places. It's a rarity not to find bondo someplace, even on rust free cars. Nowadays, it seems to be a common practice to use bondo to smooth out panels and straighten body lines. The bondo of today is far superior to the bondo from "back in the day"........

Thanks for the pix(keep them coming during the restoration) and good luck on the build! I had a'72 Lemans. Loved that car.....
