I picked up this 1975 Fastback last year, and have only just got round to starting the refurb. Loads of rust, as expected, but it should be a fun project... (hopefully)




Strangely, it looks very similar to one I owned in 1980

This one doesn't look too bad. I'm hoping that it will polish up nicely, and not need replacing, It has a glass sunroof fitted, so that would make things a bit more complicated.

Hi,

Looks like you've bought back the same car.

Same colour as my first, incidently..

What happened to the old one?

Hi Mike, it started to need more attention than I could afford back then, so I had to sell it on, I didn't hear back from the new owner, so I have no idea what happened to it.
