A trip down memory lane
Here's a pic the former owner gave me when we picked up the car. Sorry about the poor quality but it's a photo of a polaroid. I imagine it was taken some time in the early 80's just after the conversion. This is probably the maiden voyage with the new 231. Happy times. The owner has just picked it up from the garage and he's getting a pic with his buddy in the passenger seat. His buddy is rockin' a serious feathered hairdo and a printed shirt. He's looking down because he's busy chopping some lines or rolling a joint for the ride. Little do they know the owner is gonna throw a rod in the next couple of days. But for now it's summertime and life is good. In the background is a lady standing next to her busted Ford Pinto? wearing a tube top. Maybe one of these guys got lucky with Pinto lady since they have such an awesome ride.
