Here is how she looked when I found her sitting in the dirt.

I finally found my old cellphone and was able to retreive this picture. This is how she was when I picked her up August 31, 2012

Love it or Hate it, here is what she looks like now.

That is crazy
You brought this car to live again
Well done

I had it easy then
My car was pampered and garage queen and I thought I am doing a lot of work on it
No chance I can compete with something like this
Well done

Was there any rust on it?

Wow, great job !

I would love to see you do a Owners type thread with photos and notes documenting from when you got it to the amazing car it is today.
