I was fine. I had a very small cut on my hand from a piece of broken glass when I lifted the car off myself.

This is part of the blessing and curse of being 6'4 and 260 pounds. Roughly 80% of "old cars" are not even in the realm of possibility for me to fit into so this is a dilemma I never have to deal with.

I did it...like I really need another car. Looking forward to getting into it.

My Wife was pushing me to get it. She actually likes these and, long story short, I may have some free time on my hands (thanks to the 'largest tech merger..') and she wants me to have some project to occupy my time so I don't drive the family crazy. She is probably right.


While the car needs a bit here and there, the trim and interior are pretty much complete and intact, made the sale.


Anyone need a nice Snugtop

Got money burning a hole in your pocket? Maybe just buy a 911? At least it fits big and tall people

Largest tech merger. I may have more than a passing familiarity with that ....

I can see it all coming together...
Lowered suspension, Eaton Supercharger with a crossflow head, chrome bumpers, roll bar, removable hardtop...

Love it! I got my MG bug out many years ago. Wanted a B but fell for a '69 Midget. Fun but too impractical due to its non-size. That B would be fun to go Outlaw with. Enjoy.
