Re: [GFS] WHY THE SPRINGS BROKE ON MISS BELVEDERE



My Dad said it was the fault of the people who made the vault . If there was a drain in there or the vault was sealed tighter maybe none of this would of happen. In my opinion Miss Belvedere should of been sealed in above ground vault the poor girl.  Its really sad  they way it was handled. I hope someday there will be a contest to win a Miss Belvedere clone. I would like to suggest something have the persons write a 1000 word or more why they should win the car if that person has an excellent 1 they win the car or have a raffle off on the car selling tickets . If I was there for the unveiling and if she could talk if  I've noticed those tears coming from her headlights I would say someting nice to make her feel better  I would say this to her "Miss Belvedere underneath all of that you are a beautiful car. It will take alot to get you back the way you were when you were brand new and it can be done . If I was able to win you  . I would have you taken to the automobile
 beauty shop because you are worth restoring . It will be an off frame restoration . Atfer you are completed and put back together I will tint your windows and add a CD player to you but I will keep your factory radio in the dashboard. Then you will be in a nice warm garage . "

The soft parts were destroyed, but the body looked pretty solid to me.
Notice that the trim is intact and the eyebrows do not appear to be 
rusted.
If It was a rust bucket, the trim would have fallen off. 
If you want to see rust buckets, I have 2 58 fury bodies that can 
demonstrate that real well.
A good pressure washing would be a start.
but I don't think that will happen, a museum will buy it and keep it 
as is.
