Greg Hansen's '69

Car info: I found my car while driving to work in 1997. It was sitting on the street next to South High School's parking lot. It never moved, so I pulled in to look at it. The woman who owned it come home as I was looking at it. She said she had stopped driving it as the carb needed rebuilt, it only had a partial exhaust system on it, and someone had broken the steering column in an attempt to steal it, but ran when the unmuffled V8 roared to live. She took my phone number and said if she wanted to sell it she would call me. The next afternoon she called and said she wanted $600 for the car, if I bought it right way. I drove over, paid her, got it to start, and drove it home with a terrible ringing in my ears. I quickly dove into the project, despite the fact that my only work area was an apartmant garage, with no power. The tired engine was removed, and the car was taken down to the bare frame. Six years later the car was ready for a trip to the body shop. It received a new set of rear quarters, and block sanded many times to ensure that everything was laser straight, and finally painted Daytona Yellow. The vehicle has a set of HP Motorsports upper and lower control arms and Eibach springs. Also installed were a tilt steering column, disk brakes, A/C, power windows and locks. The car was finally finished in 2005.
