Good for you! Of course, you know it will not hold a candle to that big brawny 50 Commander of yours. As long as your expectations are realistic, you should have a ball with it. Post more pictures when you can.

Looks like a very nice, clean car. Good luck with it.

Yes I looked it over and it looks great.
The commander is in need of a front end rebuild but then I need body work.
I will take more pictures when I get it in about a month or so. "I am making payments to get it."

The new one needs no body work at all that I have seen well except a 2" square in the trunk.
The under coat is still shiny and clean.

Just another thought...hope you have all the paper work proper and legal. Does your payment plan include visitation rights? Is it stored securely?

I'd hate to see you on Judge Judy along with half a dozen other litigants who were making payments on the same car at the same time.:eek:

Yes they guy is leaving it in his barn untill i can get it. we are even working on a tattoo for him. He is a good guy selling me his dads car and he stated there is no problem with it living in his barn until I can get it. He told me he has had about 5 calls on the car and no one but me made the trip to see the car.

Also he is a real good egg. We even wrote a contract between us to keep things on the up and up.

Thanks for the cautionary thoughts but I hope to have it paid for sooner than later so I can maybe get it by the end of the month.

Then I'll take more pictures of it and get them posted.

Nice Car, I think it is kinda funny that his Ad mentions something as insignificant as the optional Oil Filter, but missed something very important today with the price of Fuel, the OVERDRIVE!

Nah. The doorjams match the exterior. And the weatherstripping isn't painted. ;)

I know I have neglected the board as of the last year or so. I just took over the shop from my sister and I need to keep things running smoothly so Little time for long winded posts.

Although I would love to see a few of the local guys drive their cars to the every other Friday hang out in front of our shop. Next one is on the 13th of july.

I am finally getting around to putting the dual carbs on the Commander. I hope to do the same to the Champion I would like to find the dual exhaust for it as well. So if you know a few links I sure could use them.
