Default The Unveiling

Where here goes. It's been a long time coming, and without the generous support of this community, it would not nearly be to this present stage. I figured I owed you guys some sort of feedback for putting up with me for literately, years.

I cant begin to describe how difficult it is to get halfway decent photos of such a BLACK car. The light hits the car and just disappears. Some day soon I'll get it in the sun for hopefully better photos.

I purchased the truck as a very solid, but rough basket case in Oct 1980 from a Jay Payne, in Santee Ca. Jay if your out there please let me know. I had never owned an "A" before, and bought it for a retirement project. After a few starts and stops for family and health reasons, it is now ready to roll, though not entirely complete. Are they ever?

Outstanding. My Town Sedan is all black and it is nice. I have cream wheels, so it is not monochrome, but looks dignified.

Back in the 70s I restored an all black 29 coupe. I still have it and I love it,
