Hello from Barrie, ON.


Just found this forum, been on it for about 5 hours.
Will post pics of my cars sometime on Sunday.
I've got a 66 Grande Parisienne 2dr ht. Plum Mist, Black vinyl roof. 327, TH350, 12bolt w/2.73. Got it with a 6cyl back in 83. Pulled everything off the front frame and rebuilt it. New springs, bushings, cleaned and painted the front frame.
Then put it back together. Drove it for about 8 or 9 months, then parked it.
Worked on it, on and off till around 94 when I moved to Toronto.
It's been sitting at my sister's place in Winnipeg till this past Aug.
Now it's in my garage. Ordered new carpet, weather stripping for the doors and trunk. Also got a new package tray.
It's in rough shape, still runs, but the gas line to the tank rotted thru.
First thing to fix on the long, long todo list.
Also have a 65 Catalina 2+2. Got that in 87. Was in an accident, but ran great.
Pulled the front clip off and replaced the drivers door. It's been sitting in the bushes just outside Winnipeg for about 9 or 10 years with a tarp over it.
I can hardly wait till I can get one of them on the road again.
Going to focus on the 66 this year.
Plan to make it road worthy and drive it a little this summer if I can.
Wow, lots to talk about.

Had the 66 since about 83 and the 65 since 88.
Both still require a lot of work.
