This car sat in a garage for 20 years. I replaced all the batteries
and battery cables. Installed a new master cylinder and brake
lines. New wheel cylinders and brake pads. Replaced the first speed
resistor and she Passed a PA Inspection! It's been a lot of
fun. I thought about converting it to an ac controller and motor, but
the original contact towers are in great shape. The ABS plastic body
is in wonderful condition considering it is 36 years old, and the
tires have had held air for 3 years. I figured I should keep it as
original as possible.
