Here you will find your everyday joe building a 2002 which was found after it had been lost. Original owners passed away, and offered the car as collateral to the new owner. The new owner wanted to restore, but ran out of time. A homeless man lived in the car for months. It's truly, a special car.
I will not put it back to the OE example it was the day it rolled off the assembly line, nor will I sprinkle it with eBay wings and chrome stick-on engine vents. Nope. This will be a mix of new and old, from a guy who wears a necktie during the week and gets his hands dirty every chance he can.
The name choice (by my daughter) for the car is "Francesca".
And so it begins!
