This auto has been in storage since 1983 and has survived a flood (1998) and was driven on the road for the first time today, 08/17/2001, in 18 years.  Some clean-up work remains, but this is a strong runner and a good driver.  The brakes were the biggest hurdle in putting this car back on the road, as it started and ran with fresh gas and a new battery.  She WILL NOT die and will be driven to the local cruise-ins and shows.
