    Default 3094 Found, bought, own!

    New to the forum...

    It took almost 30 years to find, but I finally purchased my first Mark II. It was my fathers favorite car since he first saw one on the showroom floor. A friend called me on the way to his condo in Florida. He saw an ad stuck to a corkboard on a 3 x 5 card. Immediately called the number to find out that the car has been in storage since 1973. Went to look at the car and weighed the pro's and con's. Two months later, it now resides in my garage. Originally white, now Burgundy? It is covered in 43+ years of dirt and grime. Gonna take a little time and research to make it A-1, but I can finally check it off of my "bucket list".
