Getting close to bringing the Ranchero home.

Been at the paint shop for a month. It has been a minor ordeal, it is our only car. I think it is bedliner day today.

Yay, another yellow Ranchero!

Wow, your yellow is WAY brighter than my stock "Tucson Sunlight" (or whatever its name is...) :beer:
James - '62 Ranchero (200cid), '71 LeSabre (464cid)

The ONLY safety device we need is a 6" sharpened steel spike bolted to the center of the steering wheel of EVERY vehicle.
Emergency Rooms and Funeral Homes will be busy for a week or so, then I predict a dramatic drop in vehicle accidents.

Thanks guys, I love yellow cars.
Picked it up today, now we get to put everything back on, just in time for a local car show.

Still need to get some of the trim on, waiting on payday for new clips. Found some fake wire wheel covers off a '78 Galaxy for $20 at the wrecking yard. Took a trip up to Washington, put almost 1300 miles of road under the tires, about half of that in one day.
