    I had a few chevys back in my day and wasn't really looking for this specific car, it was just too good to pass up.
    Sporting the factory 260cu Olds V8, turbo 200 and factory surviving paint, i pushed it up on the trailer, ran er through the car wash to knock off a layer of green and stashed it behind the shop.You can tell from the condition of my trailer how long its been since I used it regularly.

    My wife finally noticed and asked "that's a cute little car. are you working on it for someone?" To which i replied, "I'm glad you like it, I was thinking of buying it." She just rolled her eyes...
    Once that was out of the way, it was safe for my son n i to roll it down off the trailer and begin clean up.Name:  ponti x laken.jpg
