      [This space reserved for more info and pics as I get time to post]

      I'm sure if you bought it you could do whatever you wanted. I'd like to convert it to a fish tank..and fill it with chrome fish as a tribute.

      Thanks for the love, guys


      Here's a little history lesson on this car.

      Originally owned by a lady from Idaho of the name Louise (hence the name). Neighbors "bought" the car when Louise went into the nursing home. A guy in Seattle drove out with his wife and drove the car back to Seattle. Sold on craigslist to me a few weeks later.

      original craigslist pics..





      stored her for a few months and shipped her to PA ~2005.



      I moved back to PA and tore the car down and documented all the rust and dings / dents.















      Made a huge mistake and took the 78 to the wrong body shop....











      "cage" installed NOT to my specifications -

      Got sick of the games, got the car to a paint shop in NJ.... and again, wasnt satisfied with the way things went....









      brought her back to the home in PA and kept looking for a reputable body / paint shop..










      left the car at OLD SKOOL INDUSTRIES in Alpha NJ hoping Dave could help me out.... no luck.... and no hard feelings.





      put her back to sleep in central PA..

      Sad to see it go but hopefully it will end up somewhere where it appreciated for all that it is. Pics do not do this thing justice.. Honored to have parked next to it at H20.


      Someone is gonna be very lucky.

      I came here to add some of my pics, but i see you already did. here is one more.

      I purchased a car from Ryan years ago and have seen his work first hand. He has exceptional talent. If I only had the time and money right now Luise would be in a warm, dry, and loving garage.
