    As a contractor, I have a few trailers which I store at a local storage yard. Well for the last 3 years, I have been staring at this 91 fox Convertible. It's never moved, just sat there looking pitiful and 99% rust free.

    I got to talking to the lady that runs the place a few weeks ago and she said the guy lives out of state and calls his payment in every month. I told her, next time she talks to him, let him know he has an offer on the table.

    well a few days go by, and she calls and says he liked my offer and he wants to talk to me.

    Long story short, he accepted my offer and I mailed out a check that day, keys arrived with the title a few days later. put in a new battery, changed out fresh fluids and she fired right up and ran great. brought her home and spent a few days cleaning her up, the interior was Filthy!

    oh and your wondering what my offer was aren't you?

    yup, deal of the century. nothing wrong with it, besides he was living out of state and didnt want to keep paying for storage. one of those right place right time kinda deals. it does need a few things, I just ordered up a heater core, has a decent oil leak I am in the process of tracking down, and I will be going through the surging idle check list shortly.

    then in the near future I believe a trickflow kit will be going in, I cant stop thinking about giving this the same power my 65 has.

    Hahahaha I have a convertible fetish, love having the ragtop. I am thinking about adding a roll bar with rear supports to stiifin it up and add a little safety.
