PostSubject: Story of my 68 Tempest Custom. Pics!   Thu Oct 03, 2013 12:40 am

Hi bruddas, here's pics of my 1968 Pontiac Tempest Custom...her name is Esther. I call her my evil 68..the story of esther is she was bought from my grandfathers friend Anthony Gargano in 1968,from what i know it was his only car from the time of the purchase. to make a long story short Anthony went partially blind in the mid 1970s and kept the car until his death in 1988. During that time she was garage kept and only taken out of the garage to get dusted (cleaned)etc,it was his baby.As time went on in 1988, Anthony was found dead in the car in his driveway from an asthma attack..i was told he was in the car for at least a full day before his wife found him.  My father bought the car for $500 off of his wife Esther (from which I named her) that same year with 29000 original miles,all of her interior is original till this day,the only thing my father did was get her repainted and both bumpers rechromed..with new tires and cragers of course..my father gave the car to me in 2006..this past year i modified her 350 a little bit with a new manifold and a 4bbl carb and got her exhaust manifolds recoated...heres her pics..she is waiting for her cousin CHRISTINE to join her soon.   ENJOY

Nice car. She looks to be in great shape. I like hearing the stories behind these old cars when they are found.
