So true. If I recounted all the cars I parted/scrapped before I knew what was what I could make us all cry. Especially compared to some of the junk we're using as project starting points these days.Unfortunately the red car had severe rust issues as well as electrical and other issues and eventually got parted out. Many of the parts live on in my white 9k and I many of the members here's cars as well. I was young and dumber then, and they weren't as rare yet.
That's why I'm so glad you're gonna put this one back together.
