Martin, I LIKE em! Now you have projects this winter when the snows falling and wind is howling.
I'm about to ramble on a bit (as required by some law somewhere) about a car my best friend had back in about 1969 or '70. Steve bought a very lightly used red '65 Impala SS with a 396 and 4 speed. Black bucket seats and AC. Man that was a nice car. It was pretty much the big younger brother to my red '61, 4 speed Impala with a 327 (originally a 409 car, one of a very very few built in '61). Would love to have either or both today.
I know you won't be tempted to alter either car, just make the best they can be (and that you're willing to finance
) and enjoy the ocassional trip to town.
