Keeping it until the end of summer.

I always buy one in the winter, clean it up, drive it around for a few months and sell it at the end of summer.

One a year.

yeah, it was up for awhile.

Got a really good deal on it. Think people were scared away beacuse it has a few random rust spots. Sat under a tree in the mountains for 15 years. You would think it was a rust bucket.

Turned out the channels and door pillars are nice and have no holes. Only bad spot on the pan was under the battery.

Looks good. I looked at that car last year. Did you buy it from the guy in Santa Clara? I thought I saw it listed in the classifieds as being in Oregon a few months back. What have you done to it other than cleaning up the paint and the wheels?

Replaced the passenger door with a OG paint door
Fixed the bumper supports so I could put a rear bumper on
Fixed it so I could mount the running boards
did some minor body work and used beryl green to touch it up
Installed a gas tank (was running out of a 2 gallon gas can)
Got all the electrical working
Put a new beam in and went lower in the back
