sonett - from prior owner
These are the photos from the add prepared by the previous owner. The car was for sale out of Bronx New York. That is a pretty good trip from Baltimore, espcially since I had never driven or even seen one of these cars before. Sill, it looked awesome so I figured it was worth the risk and I took a bus trip up to see it. Unfortunately, these photos were taken before hurricane Sandy hit. The car was hit very hard during the storm. What was supposed to be a good daily driveable Sonett turned out to be a basket case. It wasn't driving anywhere.
I was so frustrated I had made the trip only to be so massively dissapointed. The seller didn't live near the car and had not seen it since before the storm. I can't fault him, but I did waste a bunch of time. Not to mention I was supposed to drive home so I had not booked any public transportation back to Baltimore. Getting back was a chore.
After thinking it over for a week and doing some research I decided it was worth buying the car to try to save it. I would just have to get some other vehicle to be my daily driver while I made repairs to the Sonett. I made the prior owner an offer which he accepted.
You can pick up the rest of the story in the next photo album that covers pickign up the car and towing it home.
