    Please provide wire transfer information and auto carrier pickup address? Was that too forward?
    Better yet, I’ll forward adoption papers via fed ex...

    The Jeep? Yep. Tops are quite similar, door edge is a bit different.

    Glen, I'm kinda old, but did you ever consider adopting a less fortunate older kid. Hell, I'm still a kid.

    I'm still a kid too, so I understand that part. Sorry, not adopting you though. :D

    The restoration has begun.

    Ha. Really this was the one wheel that wouldn’t hold air. So before I put a new tire on it...

    Well I did already sand and primed the tailgate. Put it up in attic. Removed the glass and Wire wheeled the windshield frame.

    I’m going to take it apart and restore one piece at a time until I get to the tub then push it it to take over the garage.

    And a little work on the windshield frame.

    I cut out most of the rotten sheet medal on the top of the frame. I only cut to where the corner was as I know that making a corner is beyond me. Had to cut more of the sheet above the corner to get the worst rot out. Made one filler piece for one corner.

    Going to have to drive the rotten part around tomorrow to find a shop that can/will bend a replacement panel for me.

    the 3b is good inspiration for scott....this one is my inspiration...I prefer the later two-tone pain with trim pattern like this, but I'll figure out how to love the older style with the dual front and rear glass....

    The dual glass front and rear has it's own "old school" cool factor aside from being an old wagon. I do like the trim package on mine.

    Scored a 231 V6 today. I think it’s ‘78 even fire.

    Had to pull the hoist out of the attic and put it together for the 15 minutes of pulling it out of the truck and putting it on the stand.

    Fingers crossed that it runs. Of course Guy I got it from said no problems.

    Question. Is this a correct flywheel for standard transmission?
