I acquired Binger on January 6th, 2020 and put 7,000 miles on it in 15 months. I was experiencing a lot of blow by and the day before the compression and leak down tests it started missing badly at idle. Compression in cylinder #2 was 20!  I was quoted $3,300 on a rebuild, worse case. After one last mountain drive, I think an overnight to Steamboat, I will be letting her start another adventure. I became obsessed with the car, and this forum, but now need to keep the family happy. It is a remarkable car and even though it’s an automatic still a hoot to drive. Thanks to everyone who has helped me the past 15 months. I never quite became the mechanic my Dad was but I think I took the lead amongst my three brothers. May all our cars and us stay forever young.

I'm sorry to hear that but letting the cars adventure continue with some one else is far better than it mouldering away in a field somewhere. Sometimes its the right choice.

Been following your engine posts, sorry.

Nice looking car, hope it goes to a good home.
