Default Yep... I'm back in it (part 2)

funny how things work out. I was looking through c-list this morning, and what did I see??? A 68 Baja show car I built in 97 just went up for sale!! Well, it has seen a few owners since me and has been in a barn for the last few years. I spent a ton of money in it back in the day. And it was for sale cheap. And I mean cheap! Like 1/14 the build cost! So, I molested the ATM, and now it is in my possession as well. Ain't as nice as it was, but still will make a respectable daily driver. Still has the 1914cc and 4.38 trans I put in it back then. And believe it or not, still same tires. Only thing changed is the racing belts were removed. I am going to try to attach a pic if I have any room left here.

***As I said, built in the 90's... And I did what was the norm, explains the paint.

Plus, when driving at night, you won't need lights to be seen.

It is still pretty decent.
I am going to replace the front beam because the left front shock tower rusted at the top and broke. I need to do some very minor patching on the floor pan under the battery box. The gas tank smell like the devil's bung hole, so i will be replacing it. The interior is not too bad. Just need to replace the warped door panels. The body is still solid and the paint is presentable. A very good 20 footer basically. So once I get the engine together for my silver car, I will get this one up to daily driver status. You know damn well it will turn some heads coming down the road again!!

The guy i bought it from said a brake line busted, and he put it under a lean-to at his barn and just never got around to fixing it. (He had a small herd of projects there) So 4-5 years later he decided to just let it go.

Couple more pics.

It had 1/2" dust on it when I picked it up. Just spent a couple bucks at the car wash to rinse it off.

She's chock full of 90's goodness fool!
