    Today marks the 3 year anniversary of buying the black (silver) coupe. I only wish I had more progress logged in over that period of time.

    Happy Anniversary!!! That is just three years of planning and consideration. Three years of education about the car. Three years of making new friends!

    Yes, yes, and especially the last one. It is fitting that Thanksgiving is this week, as I am thankful to have come to know the great people on this forum.
    Also three years of accumulating parts (many of which I probably don't need). Not quite considered a hoard yet, but I am working on it. :D

    what else could you have bought that goes up in value about as quickly as you can spend money on it?

    Happy anniversary to Raven and Stephen. A better couple would be hard to find. May they long be happy together.

    Sorry for this gratuitous post - it has nothing to do with the Raven project other than the Raven staring at me and Gadget wondering why she is not getting worked on instead. But this cleverly packaged box arrived today. :)

    Looks like we both have 3 year old cars! Its a long haul restoring them correctly, but the best way of looking at it... we must be mad..... good job my wife is ok with me going most nights into the workshop...for how long she will put up with it, I don't know!!!
    Its also a good job I like welding and metalwork as this is the most rotted car I have ever worked on - I hope yours is not as bad -

    Regards
    Marc

    I haven't dug in far enough to compare the rot. But I am happy that there are people like yourself and so many others on the forum that choose to do the metal work to save these beautiful cars. :) It may not be as easy as some other vehicles, but I do think they are worth saving.
