Note: Due to a technical issue, PT Garages are presently view-only, meaning existing garages cannot be edited, and new garages cannot be created for the time being. We appreciate the irony that a website dedicated to old cars is having trouble due to a piece of software from 2012. In our defense, software rusts much faster than metal.

While we work on fixing and improving the system, we invite you to look through the nearly 400 garages that are already on the site (which can be searched using the "Search PT Garages" link above), and to check out the Project Updates and Multimedia & Photography forums for more great builds.

    Builder / Thanks to
    Bob the Builder Lawson is currently working on this project for me.
    Story / History
    Same story many of us have. Ebay purchase from a guy in San Antonio over ten years ago. When I showed up to pay there was a story about how he could not drive it outside b/c the column was loose as he had been working on the heater controls. A small drip of oil underneath and a few missing bolts under the hood "should" have been the clue to "RUN". I negotiated a $5K discount and had the car hauled to my shop north of Austin. The car ran but I was too busy to work on it so it sat for the last 12 years. When we tore the car down a few months ago we realized just how bad the mess was. A total scham of a car. The paint job had poor masking when applied, the headers had blue paint on them where you couldn't see it. The front steering components had been rattle can painted in all places a guy with a can could reach but upon tear down many places were just raw... Obviously painted while on the car. Exhaust... Gulp... Held together with wire. A complete wreck/mess.

    So.. What do you do when you are faced with such a mess??? Start from scratch. We are replacing everything but the sheetmetal. I don't want to know what lies beneath the surface. It's a 10 footer on the paint and that is good enough for me since I'm going to abuse the "sh*t" out of this car. So.... Typial story but every "good" car has to come from some humble beginning. Hope to be done in time for summer.
