Well, some of you know that i was getting this... soon to be hopefully rebuilt and running car. But for now, here are some pics. here is this past spring.
where she was
no that's not rust, just stuff that is built up on the paint.
this used to be my mom's car (well my father's but she drove it). in 10/95, the motor lost compression and had some electrical problems. almost 9 years to the day. they parked it, put it on blocks, and basically forgot about it.
so, i've been watching this car sit since i was 15, and i've wanted it since well before that.
so we flatbed her to her new home, which will be under my deck until we get her running and such. but i couldn't let a car like this sit, that dirty.
surprisingly, most of the algal accumulation came off easy.
last night i checked the trunk and floors, and no water
vacuumed the car, cleaned out a bunch of garbage (for instance, coupons that expired in 93. seriously. 93.)
put coolant in the coolant reservoir, and checked to see if the motor was frozen.
nope. she moves pretty easy, and the coolant, when you are turning the motor by hand (with a wrench, silly) seems to circulate. nice. even the hoses seem in good shape.
WTF? how could this be? lol.
