Just stopped in to say "Hi". Can't hijack my own thread, right?

1978 Pontiac Sunbird Sport Coupe

UPDATE: The cowl rust behind the windshield and the crunched fender are the worst of the problems. I jacked up the car and looked underneath. Except for the exhaust system and getting the underneath cleaned, there is nothing else wrong with the car. The breaks don't work but, that is just routine maintenance. I want to keep the car as original as is possible although, I will probably do a change over to 5 lug spindles and axles. Then buy a set of Firebird Snowflakes for it. I got it started and heard it run. It is STRONG and did not smoke! Mileage shows 33219. May be original or may be 133219? Still not bad. I would like to buy a spoiler for it but, they are like non-existent. If you know of one for sale, please let me know?

Did you check the lower control arms?

Did Richard make it through the hurricane unscathed?
