History
Bought on EBay in 2005 from the second owner. It had not moved out his garage in Corpus Christi in 14 years and had been used for storage over that time period. Starter was bad, distributor was locked up, gas tank had 14year old gas.
But, when all that was sorted out it ran OK and I drove it that way for 20K miles over the next 7 years.
