New member & 3772
I joined this group a few ago & never introduced myelf,nor have I talked about 3772 as mr ralp messina has asked me too.You see this has been all very hard for me,and still is ongoing.My Dad bought this 57 3772 in Hollywood ca in 1975,she was clean & okay ,after I had a valve job done on her at Lincoln Mrecury were I had worked at the time,my dad drove it back east where he had numerous connections to do paint ,Interior,chrome ,you name it ,this was dad,s baby & nothing was too good for her ,he had the car single stage coated the proper white ,turned his focus on all the chrome,& Ralph this the part that's you will not like,replaced the entire interior with Connelly English leather hides,at least he had it done to the proper pattern & colors like factory spec,he had another one all rusted out back their ,I do not have the #s or anything but what he did was have those bumpers rechromed & shipped here to his house in los angeles along with the hood,trunk, grille hlamp bezels tack & pod valve covers 2 sets of wheel covers winshield back glass & more stuff ,its all in his garage along with 3772 ,the car was left ouside for several years and is not the car it was ,but can be saved the dash is peeling back a lil the seats are okay the paint needs compound and wax,chrome lil worn,rugs are still new ,except for the drvers side that took in lil water,the car meant the world to dad & his cars were always under my care since I was 7 or 8,along with The alfa sitting next to her.Sadly my beloved dad passed away unexpectinly in march ,I ive yet to totally recover,has I live across the street from his house for many years,it took me 3 months to peek into the garage & now Im making plans on bringing them both home & possibly up and going ,my plan is set with parts,shops ,stuff like that,eventually possibly this week ill open the front door of the garage & well tyow the Mk11 out to a shop first,as daqd & Mom would want me 2..I really cant take this and im sorry for my tears.....Miss you Dad & ill take care of both your beloved cars, and make you proud...Love Donie
