Make my lights and horn work. It's a coupe, so I'll have to unbolt the steering box, which I have been avoiding.

Enjoy driving. I would really like to get an F100 steering box in this year.

Since we unwisely sold the car in 2013, I have a few issues to resolve now that we have gotten it back.
1- get to the bottom of a highway overheating issue- maybe put back the original radiator the interim owner replaced for cosmetic reasons.
2- put the wolf whistle and cup holder back on.
3- figure out how to get the "peep" mirrors into a useable position.
4- determine if there is a way to make the paint less shiny.
5- drive it as much as possible......

In 2011 we bought a 5 acre Christmas tree farm in NC. I designed the house, my third and my wife and I built it. We moved in 2015 along with my 85 year old father-in-law. We had lots to still do plus we were sort of tied to home. He is no longer with us and I continued to work outside reshaping the land, digging a pond and removing over 200 large pine trees. This last summer was to be the summer of exploring then Covids. Now we see a chance to explore with our new A and even if we can't get out of the car we can have the top down and enjoy the ride. We have Mt Airy, (Mayberry) Blue Grass center just north on the parkway and dozens of local roads we have never seen. I'm counting the days 73 to go.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vUKOOWnQw9I

thanks.
the paint was too shiny to suit me originally, then the interim owner had it repainted.
my fault for letting it go.
