    My friend and I spent a couple hours this weekend putting the plow mount, harness and Timbrens on the truck. Went and got the plow out of storage today. All is good except I have no DRL on the plow. Not sure on why that is. Anyways here are the pics.

    We had about 4 hrs in the swap. Wasn't to bad.
    I'll have to double check on the year. I believe that it is the last year that the Matadors were made. My Grandparents bought it new. Grandma drove it to work everyday which is about 1/2 mile or so. She drove it til Grandpa died in the early 90's then she drove his. If I remember correctly it's only got about 70 some thousand miles on it. I know those are original. It's sat in the garage since then. Before Grandma died earlier this year, she told my brother that the car was his when he got his license. Well he has it so that's his car. We have to pull the fuel tank because the lining inside is coming off and clogging fuel filters. I'll get some more pics of it tomorrow.

    For those interested here are the Matador pics. Its a 78 with 360 and 81XXX miles. Never thought of this car as a collector type car or anything like that. Car isnt in bad shape for the most part. A little rust behind both rear wheels in the rocker area and a small rip in the side of the drivers seat.
