Notes: Purchased in Northern California. Previous owner had a new engine installed. Mike originally wanted to install an air bag suspension but found the kit too expensive, so he opt for air shocks with air compressor and pressure gauge with control valves. Edd introduced two methods of paintless dent removal: electromagnetic dent removal and hot glue dent removal. Most of the exterior left unchanged to keep the patina. Restored car brought the car to a farm while carrying spent grains to test the air suspension. Sold to Old 99 Brewery Co.
