Yesterday was a loong day. I was so excited to finally get to meet my Shasta. Over a 5 hour total trip drive, which really ended up leaving at 9 am. and finally getting home at 9 pm.You always have to expect the unexpected when buying something almost 50 years old off of Craigslist.

When I finally got my first glimpse of her she was in a driveway filled with bags and bags of trash, old broken furniture, and just plain garbage. I knew I did not want to stay in this neighborhood with a bunch of cash in my hand long.The owner selling her was very nice, her name is Sylvia .She said a man from Michigan had called the night before and wanted to beat me to her with an extra 100.00. Sylvia said being an honest woman , she just couldn't do that to me seeing we had already had our appointment made 2 days prior. I am sooo thankful.

Ms. Shasta is in great but rough shape. Her interior is mostly gone, she has a broken window, door, no wiring, and  some missing lights. But on the good side her chassis  is in great shape, and she has found the owner that will love her forever, and give her the utmost care. I can't wait for the day she can go down the road  proud and get thumbs up from drivers instead of honks because her door was flapping in the breeze.

 We got the make shift lights going enough to get her home.I have to thank my best friends husband Tim for all the help and understanding he has given me .I love ya man!, and could not have gotten her without you. 

Last night I was shocked when gossip about her turned up on a vintage Shasta forum.Her's wha they're saying..
