My wife, Lori, gave the car to me on July 19, 1997 as a 50th birthday present. I think she did a great job finding and purchasing the car. The only problem since receiving the car is that I'm always working on the car and not doing the odd jobs around the house that needs to get done. Also, the car is kind of like a piggy bank, a few dollars put into her to fix this or that thing, the only problem is it doesn't jingle much when I shake it.
The car when I received it was an older restoration (restomod) about 4 to 5 years old; I'm assuming this by the can of paint that was in the trunk, that was dated 1992. The car came from the South Lake Tahoe area and was only driven in summer by the previous owner. I have been unsuccessful in reaching the previous owner. So, I'm attempting to identify the parts that are installed on the car that are not stock, this is very interesting and can also be time consuming, but fun.
I have now owner the car for 7 years during this time I have corrected structural problem, improved/added safety items, added missing parts, replaced incorrect parts with the correct parts and made some modifications. I do major work on the car during the winter and drive it during the summers (TOP DOWN of course).
The car has won various awards at Regional and National Falcon Club of America Meets/Car shows. A log of what I have done to the car is located at...
Recently, I contacted the Department of Motor Vehicles for the State of Nevada and received approx 16 years of the cars title history. The car between 1992 and 1997, was own by 4 different people and a couple of used car lots. Between, 1992 and 1986, the same person in San Jose, Ca owned the car. I have been trying to get the cars history from 1986 and later from the California Department of Motor Vehicles. So far, I have not had much luck with the California DMV.
