The beginning

Got the bug a few years ago as a favor for a relative. She thru it back in my face. So I kept it. Has a few miles on the clock, I figure two full laps or about 280,000. The original 1300 had been replaced with a 1600, dual point heads. Hacked upgrade to 12 volt, wires further messed when someone tried to put an alarm system in. The front seats are the wrong year, as are the windshield wipers. We overheated the motor and it no longer runs very well. A foot went thru the floorboards. The transmission is original and shows the quarter-million plus miles. The wheels are original 66 -- which are slightly different than most years and take different hubcaps, of which we have none.
