Looks like a great candidate for a restoration SC and you're surely into the purchase right money-wise. Looking forward to seeing the progress and welcome to the site!

Well that sucks, I started off reading the first post and was looking forward to seeing this get restored. I hate it when people start cool threads and then just disappear.
