My first Thing June 1981
markie61
At risk of garnering ridicule...me at 20 years and pasty white. I wish I was still this skinny. I had just bought it and washed it in the front yard. Mom came out and snapped the picture. It was a 74 Acapulco. The PO rigged up a roll bar and welded a front tire mount on the front bumper. Notice the rust already starting on the rockers in front of the rear fenders. God - I really LOVED this car!

Gary from Manassas VA. IIRC it's a 1776cc. Note the use of the diamond plate sheetmetal to fill the gap between body and engine tin. Looks like a diamond in a jewel box.

Gary from Manassas VA. I *heard* that Gary also won Best Interior for the show. Thing Shop 7 point showbar, windshield supports, top, frame, +++. I could pick out several thousand dollars worth of the Dustmans' offerings.

Gary from Manassas VA. Just completed last week and walks away with First Place. The Dune Buggy he built and sold to finance this project also won First Place in its category. I *heard* this Thing also won Best Interior for the show. Three trophies - not bad in its first week of life....
