Update Aug 2009: The car has had all new brakes, new tires, rad, exhaust system.  It has been driven approximately 3000 since July '08.  It was entered in several car shows due to its uniqueness.  Paint and body work should start this fall.

March 2008 (mileage 97,996)
The car arrived in Canada (Ontario) from Ohio in 1994.  It has changed hands four times but no work has been done to it since we found it in a muddy field.  The two of us want to bring it back to life as a project during the next year or so.  It has survived 50 years without any TLC.  We felt it deserved better.  (It still runs quite well.)
