Boring rainy day here in Pittsburgh, thought I would post some pics of my 79 Spider I just bought back...it spent the last few years in a barn and was outside for 6 weeks. Needs a new carpet, top, motor mounts, clutch master cylinder, has some rust in the rockers, and a fuel leak so its the new project now that the 90 Graduate is pretty much finished...

Congrats. Must feel good to be reunited with the car you once owned. Did it find you? Or were you searching for it?
Was the yellow the original colour?. Im sure you will bring it back to life again.

It found me. I sold it to a friend in 2003 and he sold it to another friend of ours who collected cars. Her husband passed away and she decided to sell her farm and wanted out from underneath the cars. She put a post on Facebook and tagged me in it. I made a really low offer $3000 and she took it. Next challenge is to find some garage space. Original color is and was Sunflower Yellow. It was repainted in 1995.
