I'm pretty sure no one feels the way I do about my 63 Comet. It isn't on the top 10 list of best cars to restore, but there is something about it that makes me happy and I go back to the 60's when I drive it. I just feels comfortable, like you finally found that place where you are supposed to be.
This one is just like the one I had in the '60's. It was my first car and I loved it. Last January I found it in Peebles Ohio. I had to part with mine because of major engine problems and a family move to Florida in 1969. A 17 year old, young lady had it and was driving it from time to time. I think her biggest qualification for me buying it from her, was that I would take good care of it, or Bert, as she called it.
I'm not great at mechanic's but back in the day you didn't have to be. They are so simple to work on. It is a work in progress and may always be, but I love the time I spend bringing it back, and the occasional trip to Starbucks or the grocery store. I've done most of the mechanical stuff but now have the body work and paint on the outside and all the upholstery inside. It will never be a "show" car, because I want a Driver, and not one kept under wraps.
One of the things I love about "car people" is there willingness to share their knowledge and advise. I mostly only have before photo's at this time but in the next year I can see it coming together. This has been way more fun than I thought it would be.
