    Congrats!!! You've got the license plate on the front, she's good to go!

    Is she everything you were expecting? No surprises?

    Congrats again!

    Congratulations on the car arriving! I like how one of the first things you did was put the movie plate on front.

    Yeah put the movie plate on it and then the whole night calling "show me"

    Guess she is just lazy and i have to do the work my self lol !

    Going to label al the parts, and check whats missing.

    She is a little bit worse then expected, but if i knew it before hand i would have still bought her. The welding is way below my standard so i will re do it all. She will be a wedding car for my good friends so i have something behind me to motivate and keep working on her !

    Yes, apparently that "show me" stuff only works in the movies!


    Sounds like you've got the goods ready to make this one a good one. Looking forward to your progress with her!

    Great to see you got your hands on one and are able to rework some of the welding. That last photo looks pretty mean!

    The previous owner's brother visited me the other day, but he had some sad news. His brother had passed away recently. He was really happy to hear that his brother's car had found a good home in Europe, though.
