Damn, it took me 4 years to get that black Colt to where it was running right and behaved well on the road and now its got the stock motor back in it.
Oh well, at least it's still in one piece and not compacted into a cube.
I think that you might have said something before that you liked it better when it was red and I never fully explained why I painted it. First of all, I told you that it's been wrecked a few times. Well after one of the accidents the repair shop decided just to paint half of the car and not touch the other half so it had a bright and shiny front and a noticeably darker and faded rear. Also I had never painted a car before (with a gun and compressor) and I've always liked that Java Black Pearl paint so I went to it. I got a lot of complements on that color and paint job. The Bondo behind the passenger door where the body rolls into the rear wheel well lip is from me because it was rusting there and the metal was dimpled. I never got to replace the twisted upper rad mount.
Anyway, like I said before, it's just good to see that it went to someone that isn't going to give up on it and scrap it. I'm happy to see that it's going to stay in the family.
