I see a lot of posts of cars that are waiting in line for years to get restored. There seems to be less of these cars driven every year, too. I bought my 69 GTS factory 440 M-code out of the basement of a repair shop, it hadn’t been running in at least 10-15 years, we hooked up a jerry can to the fuel pump and drove it up onto the trailer. A new carburetor, tank and fuel pump, some brake and suspension work, some used wiring harnesses that I had laying around, resealed the engine and rebuilt the transmission, bought some tires from a buddy, and started driving it. Why not?
