Maybe needs something to be fixed, updated or changed but after years and years of searching I´m very satisfied with this purchase.

Very nice, Julio! I know you are excited! I hope we will see you at some rallies pretty soon. Don't forget to take lots of pictures as you do little things to make her your own and pop them up here in your project thread.

BTW - Are you getting the sedan too? :D

Thank's for your comments and I will be posting any change, at his moment the wallet is more than empty and first I need to import it to Mexico, this will require something more money and the economic situation is not ok.

About the sedan maybe this could be a future purchase, next week the previous owner an we will meet in TX to pick it up the bus and will be time to drink some Tequilas and Coronas, after that maybe he will be open to negotiate, the only thing that I know is that is a 1934.

As soon as we can we will go to a rally be sure that we will do, I'm not fluent speaking English and my Wife doesn't speak anything in English, but maybe we can trade spanish classes for english classes as another Rally activity... :lol:

Julio;

Move the flap from the back to just behind the drivers. It will help with cooling
