I am a new member. My hobby is car restorations and vintage electronics.  To date I have focused on Fords. However, when browsing for a 1964 Tempest I happened on a nicely restored 1964 with a 361 CID engine, baby blue. I have joined the forum to discuss my work on this car.

I have not bought it yet!  I am on the forum to find out more about a Tempest 361 CID before I pull the trigger and will be asking questions in the right forums. Just saying hello now.

Thanks so much for your interest. I owned a 64 Tempest in 1973.  It was used, and when it died on me on the way to work I realized  that I needed a dependable car to go to the very good job I had as an engineer with the telephone company in Tampa. 

It looked just like this one, except it was a hub cap car.

So I sold it for $100.00 which was fair considering the age and condition of the car.  On the back it had an emblem from when it was purchased new, "Boomershine Motors".  Appropriately enough she was named Boomershine.

I really loved Boomershine. Really loved her. But I also used to own a Austin Healy Sprite, so bought a brand new Triump TR-6. They had their problems but were a ton of fun. 

Anyway, I thought about her, Googled, and found this one.  I am really excited now that you told me about the disc brakes. And as long as it looks good, making it original, is not that important, because it is intended to be a street cruiser.

Funny you say: Small change can often be found under seat cushions. I was just talking to a store clerk two days ago about that. When we were kids and hard up for a little change, first stop was under the seat cushions, second stop was to round up all the empty soda bottle and cash them in at the store for 2 cents a piece! 🙂

Again, thanks for your interest.
