Ran when parked. :o) The Teletouch needs work (don't they all), and I have not had the time or money to fix it.
Upholstery has been redone with vintage upholstery fabric found in Thibodaux, LA. The engine was rebuilt about 12 years ago, and she ran great. But now she just sits in the garage waiting for me to get her back on the road.
I've been spending too much time with the '55 Lincoln (deuceofspades.com) and '50 Willys lately.
