Talking Mom's Car

Mom got the stang in 1978 in Upstate New York. Her and dad used the car in the summer months. They would cuise to the golf club, ice cream stand or use it in the home coming parade.
I got the car shipped out to me in California in 2001. Mom and dad were no good at driving anymore.
I have done all the work on it except the paint. Same paint from whwn mom had it.
Enjoy......

Thanks guys. I work at a car dealership and the photos were taken in a photo booth at our dealership. I can't believe how good they look.
Mom and Dad are looking down at it smiling.

Very nice! I love it when people restore their family's cars!! I'm sure you've seen the video of the guy who finds his dad's '65 Chevy Impala SS and restores it and gifts it back to him. Brings tears to my eyes every time I see the video!
