Found mine in a garage...


All good things start underground, hidden by crusty covers.

I regularly keep my 72 in the parking garage in the nice weather. I have three cars and a regular overnight visitor and only two spots so the cars move around a lot.

I did not know about your new addition in the garage. I rarely explore past the P1 level and there is a separate garage for the other two buildings.

The car looked very sweet when I saw it. Great find! Who would have thought that someone's 'garage find' would have been inside my own garage!

Funny stuff coldstart makes sense why go deeper underground if you don't have to. Yesterday, I found out that the Motor has less then 10 hours on it and it drilled for twin plug. Nice little bonus!!

I can see that spot from my office as I sit here. You stole it out from literally under my nose!

Awesome photographs. I can tell you right now that S went to the right home, as it's being used where it should be. Great story. Was wondering what happened the last months with it. Right at home on the track where it should be.

Thanks CountD since getting it in July I have done three races with the car. Still trying to sort out
some of the bugs. Now that the off season is here I have it on stands and I am getting to work.
New Wavetrac LSD , Twin Plug Distributor. Brake master is leaking and a few other little things to take care of.

I kinda want to see a picture of it as you found it, with its ratty cover... Amazing find! and to someone who will actually use it for what it was built for. Great!
