It should look familiar to some/all of you on here.

Built by Chris, then sold to Chris, and now owned by Chris. I'm super excited to have it. Just need to register it and put it on my insurance. Then I'll start enjoying it.

Still diggin' the wagon wheels. Don't necessarily regret all the time I spent restoring a set either. lol This car here is a very good example of what a good resto mod can be. It is the definition of a non-power adder sleeper.

Yeah, I’m really glad Chris let me know about it when he knew I was looking for a car.

Paul, I had nearly forgot about your na car. I do remember it was black with black wheels like my first colt. At least I believe it was.

Tim, I've restored so many oe wheels now I have it down to a science. Doesn't hurt to have a wife that's not afraid to get a little dirt under her nails and lend a hand with the wetsanding on the wheel lips. 8)

Chris, I'm glad you got it man. Every time I drove it people wanted to know what it was and complimented me on how clean it was for its age.

Chris P, find a cheap brake lathe and automate the wheel rotation thing, so you can polish all you want and all you spend is hydro, not energy from your soul! ;)

That aspect really helped me when I was cleaning up the lips on my wagon wheels.
