When and where did you get this car?

I bought this car on my birthday in October 1989 from the original owner who lived in Norfolk.

What kind of shape was it in? What work have you done on it?

It was in very good original condition with 61,000 miles on it. At the time I was busy ironworking and raising a family so the car was a weekend project in my garage whenever I could get to it. I finally had it ready for paint in 1995. Other than paint I rechromed the bumpers and put all new trim on it. The rest of the car is still 100 percent original.
