We had a nice ride from Gettysburg through the Michaux State Forest to visit Michael and Scott in Newville, PA:
When they bought it, it was a mess: dents and dings everywhere, body kit in terrible shape,foor pan rust, etc. So they decided to strip it down, and basically start over. Lots of work remains to be done, as you can see, but they are well into the project. We look forward to watching their progress on this restoration.
See the little cutouts in the valance above? Michael plans to run his dual exhausts through there.
Scott's (msbehmane36) son, Michael, left, with my son Brian, on the right with two Baurs today in PA. Scott and Michael's project is on the left, my Baur on the right. We look forward to watching their project as it progresses.
We had a great visit with Michael and Scott, stopping by for about an hour at the storage unit where they are keeping the project Baur. As you can see from the pics, they have started woring on it, and they do have a long way to go. Best Wishes for your work, and we hope to see from pics along the way.
Michael has now driven TWO Baurs (one more than me), since I let him take my car for a little spin. Very nice friendly folks, and we enjoyed our visit. We are also indebted to them for providing us with the contact name (Hugh Freet) and phone number for the next stop in our Baurquest: the Bullenstall Museum, in Mechanicsburg, PA. Thanks, fellas!
Scott wasn't happy with the trunk in his wife's VW cabriolet. Neither was she. So he improved it! A sliding drawer trunk! Brilliantly done! This is one of the reasons that I love car guys!! Creative problem-solving skills, with the mechanical talent to make it work! Kudos, Scott!!
