The old girl was a bit stubborn this spring. After replacing the battery, fuel filter, and priming the carb, she finally started. Had a few stalls initially probably a stuck float but a can of carb cleaner fixed the issue.

Amazing how many cars are still up North.  My first 69 bird the bottom rotted out and that was in 1980 that car was in Mass.  I would have thought that most would have been rotted out and gone like mine.
