Hey mike and wade thank you so much. Words cannot ever express how grateful I am. Thank you for all your hard work. Sorry I wasn't there. I thought you were still out of town.
Maybe sat I can come out and finish.
We've been moving and trying to get in the new house and out if the old.
I'm sorry for being out of touch.
I'm the happiest dubber ever.
After being in my family for 49 years it lives again. Now going on to the next Gen of my family.
My bought that car in 1964 in his senior year in high school.
And continued to drive it until my older sister drove it to college. Then I've had it ever since.
Now that it has a new motor I plan on restoring it to the way it was in 1964 when he bought it.
With a detailed book to follow.

It's getting close to getting the ol' bug finished for summer, just a few more engine tweaks and it will be fully road worthy. need to paint the front clip first too.
