It feels like a lot of people are selling their cars lately. I hope he isn't selling that impressive project because he has to. Covid-19 sucks.
As an update, I asked my dad about the car. When we moved out of San Luis Obispo, he didn't sell it to anyone, he turned it in for scrap. Oh well.
If that yellow car is still on the market when my income rebounds...hmm [scratches his chin]
To make a convertible in the way he did would be QUITE a task. I am still flirting with the idea of doing something along the lines of my dad and this forum's "blue hen." First gotta get through 2020, though.
