dangerous toys56 says:

its a shame indeed, i suppose since most the stuff is gone , why not upgrade it to new stuff? parts would be nonexistent to go stock again.
efi big motor, air or hydraulic rams for the roof.
just make it all look stock outside.

Mercmad says:

Peugeot invented and built the retractable hard top…Before WW2.

“the engine is in a pretty humble state of tune” yeah I’ll say so, not much compression!

Osman Ahmed says:

The romance of looking at junk beauties and imagining a restoration is priceless! Let’s get more old cars on the road. Especially in the US because you guys have a history of old car culture. Keep it up. Love from Toronto, Canada.

Thanks for the tour Steve. Years ago I always enjoyed watching the the television auto repair show you were on before YouTube came along. Now I make my own repair vids on YTube. 🙂 Inspiring.
