I am not sure what possesses me to do this, but I buy parts for cars I don't own...yet. It has happened for years. Back in 2002 I bought a '66 Falcon dash pad at a swap meet. Great price, good looking Aqua pad that was the lone Ford part in a Chevy guys pile of four barrel intakes and cylinder heads. he didn't even know what it fit...but I did. And I didn't even own a car it would fit; but I was potentially almost about to--eight months later.
So this last week I was at Temple Auto Parts (a salvage yard) in Batesburg, SC and spotted a 1969 Torino Clock for the dash panel of the 1968 Fairlane I almost near am about to go get. So I snagged it. Why do I do this? I dunno, a deal is a deal is a deal? I am somewhere deep down an eternal optimist and not the realist I present myself as? Hmmmm. No matter, I scored a CLOCK!
