Retirement

For a long time I have seen on many of the classic car shows on TV that people name their cars.  Well it was not long after our first cruise night that we came up with a name for her...  It started off as "Betty" mainly because of the Betty Boop image in the back window (see below).  Then Anne added her name to it and she became "Betty Anne". 

Sorry no long story of mothers name of great grand parents 3rd time removed cousin, just plain Betty Anne.

This is the story behind how I found stripped, rebuilt, tested and drove my first Classic Car.  Some of it might be interesting while other parts just plain boring.  Sorry but that goes with the territory of building and owning a classic car.  A lot of hurry up and wait...
The first stage, mechanical, took exactly a year to the week to get from towing in an empty shell to driving it out onto the road with brakes working.
The second stage on the project took a lot less time.  It only took 4 weeks to get the bodywork and paint completed.  Of course it took me several weeks of hunting to find and get all the bits and pieces together before I booked the time at Diego's shop (Affordable Collision Center).  He promised me a 4 week time span... I made him sign a contract to that effect with a penalty of $100 per day over the 30 day period.
