I finally got around to taking some pictures of the car Toby Joe and I purchased recently. It’s been great. However, we’re putting it to a true test next week when we drive it up to Rhode Island.
The problem area is shown below. Eventually (soon) we need to get a new door. It’s rusted through all the way into the bottom and I am told that in the winter the water freezes inside and can cause problems with how it opens and closes. We’re hoping to take care of that in the early Fall. And the back seat needs to be replaced, too.
People really do check it out every time we’re out driving and somehow that makes me feel proud. The other day, after having the guys at our local car wash gawk over it, a guy on a bike rode past and yelled “NICE CAR!” To which Toby Joe replied, “Thanks, man!” It really is pretty hot, I have to admit.
But she needs some work. We still don’t have air conditioning and there are two rust spots that need to be addressed. Oh, and the sunroof needs to be fixed as well. But she runs well and has very little mileage. The body, overall, is in great condition.
Cross your fingers she makes it to Rhode Island. Cross your fingers we don’t melt.
