My uncle used to say, "working on vintage cars is not for the faint of heart." It's takes hard work and determination to bring a car back to life. I learned that very quickly with my first car.
I found my old classic in a junk yard. There were many parts missing. It soon became a delicate full time job to put all of the pieces together. I knew it would be a challenge, but after watching my uncle search for hundreds of parts for years, I knew it could be done.
The first thing I had to do was find the front windshield. It was a pain because this particular model was no longer in production. So I asked my uncle, a true professional for help.
As badly as I wanted to complete the restoration in one go, I knew it would take time to make the car great. Each day I would see progress which meant a lot to me.
