Been a great and interesting journey

Bought this car in 1996 and took it off the road for 4 years while I rebuilt it as close to possible for limited money to original condition. Has the 10.75 compression motor with of course the 5 speed close ratio transmission. New panels, new suspension, new camshaft,rings,bearings,paint and some chassis rust repairs and its looking great ever since. A good handler but not a cool car in Australian summer conditions what with black vinyl upholstery. However its now time to sell it in April 2015 so its off to a friend who will take further care of it. Its been a reliable car since rebuilding with seldom a problem. Some odd things like being early fuel injection - never leave the key in on position as sure enough it will flood and be difficult to start. Great on a trip as it loves to rev and a curvy road always leaves a smile.
