I recently acquired this sleeping beauty. The first photo shows it "as found" in a heated garage where it's been for the last 25 years - since it was only about one year old in fact!

 

I'm now looking to get it back on the road and hoping this will be more of a re-commissioning job rather than a restoration as such. The bodywork and underside are in amazing rust free condition.

I think we need to know all the details; why was it put in there, why for so long and is there a better way to show the world you are one of life’s true winners?

Excellent, really excellent

He'll be wheeling out his Sao Penza next - what a debut!

I thought that steering wheel was exactly like a Chrysler Avenger but thought I must be going mad so thanks to Felly for confirming that I'm not losing my marbles.

Graham can I say two things? Firstly - Dinitrol and lots of it. And secondly....

THATS AMAZING!
