So this is Becky,
Why is it named Becky you might ask well I found her in a local junk yard waiting to be picked apart and crushed. I really couldn't let that happen so I found the funds to rescue her. The car was mostly complete except for what you can see in the picture plus it came with a awesome plate that read on the dash "this car was especially built by datum for Becky Bradshaw". So what better of a name for a survivor car then its old owner. I finally got it home and gave the motor a look it appeared as if it would start besides a shredded belt. So I got a battery and little fuel/oil in it, sure enough rararararapop bam and she roars to life!!! Really if the junk yard hadn't cut off the cat I don't think you could hear this thing run its so quit .

Anyways here's some pictures hopefully I can get it back on the road soon.

In your state, what process do you need to do to get a salvage car back on the road? Does it have a salvage title? Was it cheap considering everything you need to to get it road worthy again?

You just might get more meaningful replies if you updated your info with Country, State or Province, city information. I for one am not a mind reader.

sorry guys been a bit so the parts car was a 4 speed but is long gone now. And Becky is in a nice covered garage for the winter. I was also able to build a new 2.5 stainless steel exhaust and find a grill and tail lights. It was a blast driving it to the wintering spot up a curvy mountain road. Now the hoarding begins for my future swap plans.
