“Dwell on the beauty of life. Watch the stars, and see yourself running with them.”
― Marcus Aurelius
When the 1965 Riviera showed up at Bill's house, it was a bit of a shock. He bought it as a running, driving car and it was anything but. The transmission was leaking and chattered when put under a load. The air suspension was malfunctioning. Few lights worked. The car would barely start and run. It was not as David Jackson had said that it was.
"I was pretty shocked...David had a decent reputation in the Riviera world and I didn't hav ethe car checked out...I made the mistake of trusting him. David has said that the transmission leak had been fixed...it was not true. Basically, I paid full price for a project car, albeit a pretty one."
Bill was, and is, friends with John Jankowski. Retired now, John spends his time in his shop working on classic cars. John is amazingly intelligent and exceptionally detail oriented. Fortunately, John made time to get the Riv functioning at a minimum level.
Here is his initial report when the Riv was towed to his shop.
