Here We Go Again....

Just when I thought I was safe from classic car restoration, this came along.
She's a '63 Falcon, in pretty good condition. Bryan's dad has wanted to buy a car with him for a long time now, and while we were camping in Wasatch they found this on the way up to Kamas in some little town that I can't remember the name of.
Anyway, it was a really good price, so Bryan went and looked at it. Then hauled Hyrum up to look at it. Then went and looked at it again. And finally brought it home.
I do have to admit, she's really nice. And I'm glad for Bryan to have something around to work on again since he loves it so much. And it actually has a back seat, unlike the Mustang, so we can ALL go places in it.
She's really pretty, except for one not so small detail.....
the early 1980's Ford LTD dash. It is absolutely hideous!!! What the?????
And there are no door handles - you get into the car by either opening it from the inside or using the secret button behind the side mirror that doesn't work. Hilarious.

Wow! Considering how indecisive Bryan is I'm surprised he bought it so quickly! I would've expected at least a dozen trips to "take a look" before making the big decision! He must be growing up! LOL!
