    Enough about me. I'm going to use this space to talk about my car.

    1968 390 (Was sold to me as a GT but The VIN indicates that it is a 500) C6 automatic on the column, bench seat,with A/C. Raven Black.

    Bought it in Oregon 12/15 and had a wild 600 mi drive home to the Bay Area. Then had a closer look. Way rougher than I was led to believe. Needs work pretty much everywhere. But I can drive it while working on it. Front brakes will be the first thing to take on.

    The engine seems good. Trans shifts hard - going to change fluid and filter and hope that does the trick.

    New (stainless?) exhaust. New starter.

    Nothing on the dash works. Lights, gauges... nothing. Was told that the dash elect was bypassed to get charging system working? Whaaat?

    Was told that floor panels had been replaced but wasn't told that they were put in right over the old rusty panels. Sheesh.

    Rusted out door bottoms.

    Wheels rusty, tires ancient.

    Heater hoses disconnected (leaking core?)

    A/C not working.
