Alright guys sorry its been so long funds fell short for a bit but work bounced me back! so im starting my thread all over!

Heres how i found her. It had been sitting there since 04!

Its a pain scrubbing off this much moss build up!



Diagnosing the problem!


Squirrels nest under the hood? that could be part of the problem!


All the parts to get her going again! and it worked great! new raidiator, dizzy cap and rotor, oil change a little marvel mystery oil goes a long way,coolant flush basically the works!


Also a fresh set of wheels! bottle caps looken good!?
