1973 P1800 ES

from my cousin Rob Macdougall in Montreal:

"As my 60th birthday fast approaches--just bought this beauty!!! 87,000ish original miles. When I was 20 in 1973 this was the car of my dreams. Now I have one!!!"-- RM

Rob found the car on eBay, in Virginia.  Now it has to get to Montrèal. We'll let you know how. I've recommended Safe Way Auto Transport out of Kentucky, on the basis of deliveries they have done for me and for people I know. So far no complaints.
Found another p1800, not as nice, for sale in Maine last year.
