Extra: One Step Closer to Owning a Surly LHT

So today I sold an old car that I had bought with my father 6 or 7 years ago.

She was a 1964 Pontiac Parisienne. Frame, chassis and body was in decent shape, she just needed to be restored. Unfortunately my father and I never had the room, time, or money to restore it. Him working full time and having a dozen other little projects to do, and me being a full time masters student. It just was not meant to be.

So today I sold her and said my goodbyes. We made a deal with the new owners that we would be able to come see her once she has been restored. It was a sad day.
However, out with the old and in with the new. With the sale I now have the capital to start seriously looking into the Surly Long Haul Trucker! Went to talk to my LBS today and he will give me a call when he gets the catalog from the Canadian distributor of Sulry products, NRG.
