Out of the Lurk

Maybe the emotional field around Mark's car/situation called me out. Great stuff!
Been sort of lurking for quite some time while I nibble away on my 86.
Anyway bought this 86 a year or two ago (time is blurr). Loved the colors and originality. Drove it ooohh ten minutes or so after delivery before the fuel sender/gauge miscalibration left me by the side of road. After an hour or so of deliberations borrowed some lawn mower gas from a neighboring farmer and back home we go. One thing led to another hundred things and now getting ready to engine and trans seal refresh spruce up as the last chapters. The accomplishments so far range from sunroof to floor pan, to repaint/rebuild front bumper to rebuild rear bumper to seat leather and wheel (steering and rolling) restoration and, and, and... Engine and trans last. Sort of a restoration, repair, reincarnation.
Pro and domestic life leaves me very little time to devote.
This site has been invaluable. Great group as the Marky Mark episode is clearly articulating.
The belated obligatory photo of the first arrival.

Looking Forward and
Continued Success to All,

Gary Siemion
