Thank you. I am not sure if your quote "not restoring survivors" is a signature or request? In either event, I have not the slightest to restore. I fully intend to maintain it in original condition. We are having a great time with it! Thanks.

Good for you..
Thats my quote. The first thing I look for at a car show is a survivor and make bee line for it.
Please refrain from restoring the survivors

With most cars, all I do is stop the rust and get it cleaned up and running well. I like the battle scars, the wear, the story that old cars can tell. I do not like them "sanitized."
