That has to be some of the best damn advice/reality check I have received yet. I really appreciate that! This damn car just keeps knawing at me. Like that darn last, sad, ugly, puppy sitting in the Wal-Mart parking lot, long after all its siblings have been taken to a new home. You want to save it! I know this car will never be worth a bunch and never command a price. I think it would just be a fun counter weight to do where aftermarket parts do not matter so much as they would on my Mach 1, rebuilding a smaller cheaper motor, less parts to track, scrutinize and restore to perfection. I think of this more as "polishing a turd!" I'll never be able to mask its nasty stench "(6cyl)", but I think I can polish this turd until it blinds the unsuspecting oogler until they open the hood and get a wiff. You are right, it will sit for awhile until I can get priorities strait. Just retired after 25+ in the Army. Wife let me get the Mach as a retirement project only after I went and got another job, go figure! So, yes time is split between what I want to do and what I have to do. I don't think I am losing anything if it just sits and I have no expectation to buy and flip. I will try to get some pics in the next week or two, as it is literally sitting in a barn, yes an actual barn find, if a 6 cylinder can be called that legally!
I really like this site, its wonderful members and all their great advice and stories.
