It's not quite that bad. Temperatures are pretty descent from late April to early October. this year I was able to work on my car in a friends heated garage. It me cost about $500 in fuel oil to work only on weekends for 4 months this winter. But I was able to pull my 283 and Muncie for rebuilding and Install a freshened up temporary 350 and TH250. I'm going to concentrate on getting the rest of the car fixed and then think about putting the correct motor back in. Also I was able to knock out the rest of my suspension, steering and brakes. In Vermont the cars get rusty fairly quickly and the population of the whole state is only about 250,000 so old cars and parts are really hard to find. But thanks to the internet and ebay I'm finally starting to find the things I need. Once the weather clears up I'll be starting on the sandblasting and taking the body off again to put it on a rotisserie. I was hoping to have it on the road for it's 50th birthday this year but it looks like it will have to be next year.
