I bought my little blue love when I was 16 and over many years of asking for car parts for Christmas and birthday gifts she was able to be completely restored in 2009. My dad, who owns a restoration shop, restored her to be driven. She is a our huge part of our summer life. She drives us to the beach, church, weddings, kids birthday dates, and the movies. It’s with a heavy heart that we let her go but we hope one of you loves her and lets her bring you joy like she has to our family.
