Welcome from southern NJ. Dads can be a LITTLE trouble at times, know this as a son & a dad and grandpa. lol
Cool story. Persistence pays off. PICTURES, PICTURES PICTURES, of 68 as resto goes along AND that 71 Gunmetal w/ sunroof, kinda "into" those myself.
Mark your calender for Carlisle in July, get the needed interior & other fiddly bits for the 68.
