Yesterday (Thursday, Oct 1st) I traveled by Amtrak train and LIRR commuter train to Long Island NY and bought a cheap 1989 Vanden Plas car.
After looking it over for a few minutes and speaking with the owner for maybe a half hour or so I got into the car and drove it from Long Island NY to Youngstown Ohio. The car was very cheap and came with a bunch of spare parts in the trunk. On the trip home it drove quite well except for a lot of wind noise coming from the passenger’s footwell. I knew the car was rusty but this evening I pulled back the carpet that was covering a VERY large unsightly lump in the passenger’s side front floor.
After I removed the riveted in patch panel I found this hole in the floor. I managed to move the dislocated jacking point back down into place so tomorrow I can try to fabricate a better patch for the floor to eliminate the wind noise whistling through this hole.
This are also rust bubbles on a few spots of the hood.
And some rust in the rockers
