why "tow me"?

... yeah, when i saw shot this, i distinctly recall picking my angles to avoid drawing attention to the really sad paint on that front wing.

still think this is a tremendously photogenic car.

Tow me evidence@second picture. I always think about posting a shot of the sticker itself, but figure people will see it in the other shots.

It's a fantastic looking car (particularly that chiseled face), but that is a ridiculous place for a car to start rusting out. Can you believe that entire fender has been ruined by the way the emblem was placed?

ugg so tragic about the paint.

i'm hoping that tow sticker is what prompted the car to get taken to the mechanic, not that it got the sticker from waiting at the mechanic for so long...

Speaking as the previous owner before this guy neglected it, the rust wasn't caused by the emblem. The whole front quarter panel had been resprayed and was not done well. The paint was beginning to peel. As for the car, it's really pretty, we bought it because it looked like a Rambler version of a 1967 Galaxie. It has the 343, auto with the am radio entertainment system and factory throw pillows.

Hi,

Don't suppose anybody knows if this is for sale? My grandfather had this car but in a gold-brown colour. I have wonderful memories associated with it. I'd love to have one. I can be reached at gdick@mts.net
