A little history on this car.........The first Power Tour we went on was in 2005.....Started in Milwaukee and ended in Orlando.....There was a group of guy's that flew in from Australia to do the tour.....They flew into L.A. and bought this car and drove to Milwaukee....We got to meet them at a Party in Milwaukee before the Tour started.......LOL.....Wild group and a lot of fun........So......while in Milwaukee, the owner of the car met and got a girlfriend ......So.....After the Tour he drove the car back to the Milwaukee area to be with her..........He sold the car to a friend of mine in July of 05......Floyd had the car 10 years and kept it in a heated climate controlled environment........Labor Day weekend we were at a car show and noticed Floyd had the Car for Sale.......The rest is history......The car is a perfect California rust free piece that was gone thru in the early 2000's and built to what was normal back then.........LOL.....Just a couple weird things about the build back then......obviously the builder didn't want the A/C condenser in front of the polished radiator......so .....it was mounted parallel to the road behind the front bumper with an Electric fan blowing air thru it when required........except mounted in that position while driving down the highway it didn't work too good.....LOL........the other thing is with the Condenser mounted in that position ......there wasn't any room for the front sway bar........so......the car was a little wishy washy going down the road......all soon to be corrected along with a LSA drivetrain transplant..........So......Here we go again.........
