Thanks guys! The thing is ridiculous. On the outside the patina is killer, the paint's completely faded and thrashed, the vinyl roof is dry and cracked, then mechanically there is zero rust or even soft spots anywhere. The PO just replaced brakes, bearings, all new front end, new dual exhaust, springs (which I just cut the hell out of) and shocks.
It needs a drivers side motor mount and that's it. It flew through the safety and even the park brake works. Its unreal. Now that's its low, I ordered bullet center caps and lug's, and i have a buddy who is going to do some old school striping and were good.

I think I traded myself into a corner here actually, cause it takes a special someome to love this car....its big, real real big....and the patina, while completely awesome to me, would turn most people off I suspect....so I mighta found a keeper
