My dad bought this car new, and I have always wanted to restore it, but no longer have a place to keep it, so I may have to dispose of it.  Does anyone have any suggestions, or want it?

UPDATE: In early 2009, the car was given away to someone who was going to restore it.  I've lost track of them and am interested in finding out where the car ended up.  Please email with details.
