"I rescued the car out of an elderly gentleman's back yard where it had been sitting since 1968 due to electrical problems.  The car was purchased for a paltry sum, however as we all know, the savings on the purchase price went right back into the car to make it live again.  The car is driven daily between San Francisco and San Mateo, Ca. (approx. 70 mile round trip) where we sometimes see a '59 Corsair convertible running up and down I-280.  I really enjoy this car, however I am looking to find an additional E-car, preferably with power accessories and an automatic, 'cuz this car likes to run and run fast!"
