Re: Hi folks, just bought a '72 convertible

I've decided to not even try for what I think the car is worth, and just go with a cheap price for the car and parts together so I can get on with other things. I'll post a real ad for it in the for sale section when I can find the time (real busy right now). But I said that you guys would know firs...

Re: Hi folks, just bought a '72 convertible

I'm sorry too, but to do the car right I'd have to expose the birdcage and I'm just not up for that. I hate doing things halfway (in this case fixing the rust in the birdcage that I can see and access). I'd always wonder about what was hidden. If it were a big block car or an LT1 (or even just a 4sp...

Re: Hi folks, just bought a '72 convertible

I have shelves full of NOS parts. Some of the highlights are door panels in dark saddle, front and rear bumpers, Stingray emblems, Rally wheel centers and beauty rims, exhaust tips, exhaust bezels.... the list goes on.

I don't have the VIN handy, but if you want I'll find it and post.

Re: Hi folks, just bought a '72 convertible

Your post follows my thinking just about to the letter, Tim. As for the parts going with the car, I may make that the buyer's choice. That NOS stuff probably ought to go to a more rare example than my car - but, on the other hand, I have my doubts that any buyer would let the parts slip away. It jus...

Re: Off to the car show this weekend!

Glad you made it to a show, Tim. I missed one of our best local shows that day - had some weather-sensitive work that had to be done.

I'm a bit jealous.

Re: Hi folks, just bought a '72 convertible

Alright, I'm taking one final hard look at this car and am ready to make a decision based on that look. The determining factor for me is the birdcage, which I know needs some repair. What I don't know is how extensive that repair will need to be. I really don't want to be the one to do a full disass...

Re: Hi folks, just bought a '72 convertible

Still in a holding pattern. I made a couple of laps around the car today while visiting my mom for mothers day. For the time being, I'm trying to put the car (and the need to dive into it) out of my mind. One thing I have decided though, I will not be parting the car no matter what happens. Sorry 'b...
