  • My Lark is out of the Barn!!!!

    After being on blocks for most of the last 11 years I finally pulled my 62 Hardtop out of my parents barn. The old girl had been "retired" because of graduate school, two job changes, a wedding and eventual parenthood and life in general. It only took about twenty minutes to pull the hardtop in a position where we can get it up to the house so I can either restart her or have my mechanic tow it away to change all the fluids and get her going again.

    I forgot how heavy a Lark hardtop could be, good thing we had my folk's pickup because I could bearly budge the Lark by myself and to thing I once was able to push that old Lark easily Time marches on

    If I can find our digital camera I'll try to get some pictures posted

        Always glad to hear about someone hanging on to their car and then getting back to it. My 52 has languished for years waiting on we to get it going again.

          That's the beauty of cars; if you want to keep it, it doesn't cost anything to do so. All you need to do is preserve it from the elements and deterioration. As they say around here, "They ain't eatin' nuthin"
