I've had it a while but thought I'd share with this forum...it's rough...

Like I said, it's ROUGH!! But it is a labor of love...it was my grandfather's and he taught me to drive it when I was 8 years old. PRICELESS!!!

I managed to find another deck...freight KILLED me on it but there are none down here in Florida. I had to replace the floor pan too. My Dad kicked the poor thing into the woods and forgot about it. Rust definitely takes it's toll...
