Hi guys, I'll be hanging around again! After almost 4 years, it was time to move on and I sold the BMW. I worked out a deal with my stepfather and bought this 96 Fleetwood off of him. It's been sitting for a year and half and needs some love, but I'm excited to get back into a b/d. I don't really care for golf cars or tan interiors, but it'll work.
On to some pics. Only have a few cheaply iPhone pics but I'll throw them up.

So long story short, got the car from Florida sight unseen. Had a bad engine after the fact, which we replaced. Then the heat wouldn't work so it's been sitting since winter 13, in the same spot..

Started with a jump and started a quick rinse. A year and a half uner a tree, it was NASTY

After it's first wash

Chrome wheels!

First matter of business, new acdelco battery

So that's all for now. I just bought 4 new tires with white walls, new heater hoses and rad hoses, new radiator, lowering springs/shocks for the front, anddd that's all for now. I'll update as I go along.

Look forward to seeing you guys again!

That's a sweet ass way to come back!

Good to see some old names up again. Hopefully you keep it long enough to go to the round up

Im swapping my interior so if you need any tan interior parts let me know. Most of it is shot but you never know.

I also have a pretty complete 1995 FWB parts car.

Nice comeback AND parts delivery! Indigo had some free fleetwood parts I think if you needed anything. His thread is in the parts FS section. Matt also had marker lights if needed.

Welcome back.
