Hi guys, been a while since I posted here, not much going on. But that changed on the Memorial day weekend. We bought another Chevy!
A friend send me a Sacramento Craig's list ad and I immediately recognized the car as one I have followed on the internet since it sold at a Mecum auction in Indianapolis, May of 2011. It turned up in Texas at the Mecum Dallas auction Sept of 2013 and didn't meet reserve. In 2015 it was on a consignment lot in Dallas all summer...I made an offer that was refused and forgot about it. Then last March it was for sale again at a different lot in Dallas. Another lower offer was refused. But it sold to a buyer who had it shipped to Yuba City, CA. 50 miles from home! what are the odds?
After a thorough inspection I bailed him out for what I had offered the Texas dealer.
The paint and body are excellent on a older body-on restoration. So far no buyers remorse, I've been tinkering on it the past month. Two shows so far and two more this weekend.
So do I need another yellow convertible? not really but its fun comparing the two. Ten years apart, so different yet the same.
Thanks for listening, Jay
