Update!! History uncovered...
Well, well, well. I was doing some research for my Alfetta brother, Stacy, and look what I found: http://www.sportscarmarket.com/profi...meo/index.html
A gosh-darn article by Pat Braden himself all about my little old Sporty. Is that cool or what? Funny part is that, once again, Pat knew exactly what he was talking about. I paid a lot less, a LOT less for the car than it sold for on eBay five years ago. 'Course it's been sitting for the last 3 or 4 years, and shows it some. At least now I know that the guy who "refurbished" it had a clue what he was doing. (That's what Pat called it in a printed copy of an email that he sent to the PO.)
Well, as Pat makes it very clear, if you buy this car, don't put any money into it
, drive and enjoy it
, and don't ever plan on selling it
, and you will be fine. Hey, two out of three ain't bad.
