In 2006 I bought a 1967 Pontiac Firebird that hadn't run in over a decade. I've been restoring ever since and it's finally done after 17 years, 3 months, and 11 days! Or actually it was 1 wedding, 3 kids, and 4 dogs. No wait I mean 4 cities, 4 rental houses, 3 purchased houses, and 2 states. I've paid more in towing fees than to buy the original car.
No stock talk in this post. Just an old car hobby.
