69Re: Uploaded pix of my 1970 Eldorado
- Aug 2, 2002Hey thanks for the compliments!, i actually never got to drive it or
put it on the road as of yet, and i can't wait!!.
It sat in a Museum of Automobiles in Arkansas for many years and all
that sitting idle killed the engine so im having it redone.
I wonder what it will be like when my modifications are complete!
I will definitely post up more pix as i go, glad to bring you back
down memory lane!
