    Re: I got my baby back!

    this was my first car. It was my grandfathers, he bought it new in 81. he died in 89 and my grandmother gave it to me in 96 but the title was never signed over (oh, yeah necessary info, my grandmother had been showing signs of dimmensia/alsheimers since 91,) so 4 months after it was given to me her mind slipped, and she demanded it back, and having another car I gave it back, this happened at least 4 other times in the next 9 years, last year the state put her in a nursing home and due to some extenuating (and kinda suspicious) circumstances my dad was denied guardianship and it went to a court appointed lawyer (incedentaly this was the same lawyer who was appointed to investigate my dad for guardianship.....conflict of interest anyone?.....and now collects high fees from her estate) so I ended up having to buy my own car from her estate.

    those are not as wide as the origionals somewhere I have a pic from 82 with the wide ones I'll see if I can scan them

    no it is a v864, wich I hope to reenable soon if I can figure out how it was disabled (3rd gear switch is still plugged in)

    Very sweet looking ride!!! Glad you got her back. Would have been a shame to lose her. Sorry to hear you had to go through all that, but she looks worth it!
