History
Ordered new by my grandfather (maternal). Purchased for my mother from her dad. Used as a first car for 2 older brothers. Left for salvage in our pasture. At the age of 14 I pulled the car to the garage with my dirt bike and started working on major body issues. My mom said at the time if i could get the car running i could have it. I bought a Manta and swapped the engine to finally make it mine. Eventually re-built the original 1.9L, 40-over with my dad as the swapped engine failed.
Through high school and 1 year of college this was my one and only car. In April '96 it went into storage (parents garage) until 2006 when took it Colorado to begin restoration. I had the care dismantled, body professionally stripped and then, met my wife, got married and now have 3 kids. Re-starting my restoration in 2015.
The car has never left the family and I've owned it for 24 years.
