My son purchased a 1969 Pontiac Lemans around 2007 on e-bay, it was in Binghamton New York and we live in the southwest suburbs of Chicago. The car ran but poorly, when I had time but more importantly when I had the money I would try to get some work done on it. I am not a mechanic but I have a good amount of know how, I do all of my own repair work no trans work, so like many other at home restorations I got to busy at work. I am still very busy but have started making time to finally get it up and running again, wish me luck.
P.S. not much of a story teller
