I baught this car in california. Restored it and sold it to a California dealer in around 2002. I spent a few years working on it as it was scrap when I baught it. Does anyone know who owns it now? I would love to hear from them to know how it is doing. It was such a beautiful car and I have lots of photos of the restoration.
