I bought this car on a trip looking for cars for two teen step daughters. I spotted it and mom hated it. Terrible first car for a teenage girl and she was right. We left but I turned around and drove back and bought the car and drove it home with the intention of a quick turn around. Three days later a step daughter borrowed the car and promptly destroyed the numbers matching motor. Destroying all possibility of any quick profit. This poor car was in terrible condition. Without any doubt, had anyone else bought this car it would have seen a junkyard death and nearly did anyway. I decided to build the car. A massive amount of work and way too much money. I used it as a daily driver and slowly but surely it took shape. Finding various parts were nearly impossible but after a year of searching I found the last body part to be able to finish body work and get her into primer. As I am very close to driving my redone suburban I put it on cl. The typical amount of circle jerks ensued and got a cash buyer from palm springs lined up for Monday. Saturday night at 10:15 I get a text. He had several questions and asked to call. I agreed. After a few questions on original color and interior I noticed the guy was getting quite emotional. Then asked for the vin number. I explained this was not an ss monte carlo. He then explained he had been searching for his fathers long lost originally purchased 1974 Monte carlo. He then went on to describe the car in impossible detail. When I interrupted him and said it had a cross drawn in blue marker on the pillars is when he broke into tears. A vin check confirmed in fact this was his fathers long lost car he work for five years in the fields to buy.I unwound the palm springs deal and agreed to take payments. I meet the entire family today in Sacramento so they can see the car.I was just telling my dad how I felt I did a good thing saving this car from a sure junkyard death.
