    What has two thumbs and two 72 'Ronas? This guy!

    So about two years ago my father gave me his 72 Corona Deluxe. This one is currently under construction and the head is being redone. Its a rust bucket with several dents, but the interior is very nice. So two nights ago i was surfing around on craigslist and i see a 72 Corona for $600! Its been kept in the Oregon high Dessert so there is no cancer, the interior is shot and there's about a centimeter of sand buildup on the car. So I called the guy, drove down there and bought it for $440 with some extra stuff! So as of now it is being delivered to my house and when it gets here i will post some pics! :lol:

    Here are some pics of my other Rona:














    Other Rona pics to come :tu:

    So, the plan is to completely strip and sand my new rona while I'm driving the old one. In order to do that I'm gonna have to find someones garage I can use, because I don't have one...
    I will post pictures when there is progress

    Very nice! I can't believe you got a hold of two in sort of the same colour even! Good luck with the project.
