I guess I'll start,

Here is my first day, 1/13/21.
This soon would be the first and last day the original motor would run under its own power. Note, I didn't know this when buying.
I eventually had to do an engine swap in my garage and have loved the car ever since.

First day pictures! Funny story how I found the car was I was relocating an raccoon that had been around my house and I saw the car sitting all alone on the front lawn of a business. I came back after dropping off the animal and called the fellow selling the car. We met later that day, talked over the car and took it for a drive. It was then I knew this was the one.

This vehicle was almost an hour away from my house, I would have never known if I hadn't been driving out to a wildlife preserve to displace a raccoon.

Here is the first day for Ivy. Picked up in Atlanta. My wife wanted a convertible for eight years and I got her this for a Valentines Day gift.

I spent $1,000 for it. Put a lot of hours in it and a little more than $10,000 into. Getting it running and road worthy only $5k.... but then hit by uninsured driver. Cost another $5k to fix the damage.
