Default Pontiac finally on the restoration pathway

Well, I finally found an enthusiastic mechanic/restoration fellow to begin work on my 1953 Pontiac/Barnette. Getting loaded and off it goes to it's temporary home.

The tow company operator was full of questions and wants to see what it looks like once completed. A real professional that payed attention to what he was doing each step of the load and unload. Nice to work with.

I'll post more pictures as the work progresses over the next many months. I have a rough deadline of June 1st 2020.

Bill, I will look forward to watching your ambulance as it goes through its restoration. It is fabulous to see these rare cars restored and then enjoyed and showed with pride.

If you do as great a job in this as you did on the lifeliner, it will be an exquisite refurbishment.

Cannot wait to see Regular updates and pictures.
