Dammit, why does it have to be so close. Its a good candidate for my usual VW tranxaxle/Subie motor swap...oh not my "usual" since I've only done it once but a 2nd one would be fun.

resisting urge to go see it....

A high school buddy of mine had a Dauphine back in the 60s. He got killed in an automobile accident along with two other friends at a notorius intersection between Orangeburg and the beach. I'm not sure if he was driving the Dauphine on that day.

Barring any unforseen circumstance and assuming a little flexibility on the part of the seller it will be mine soon.....I've done darn near everything else, but never French, need to check that one off the bucketlist.

I may, shocking as it seems, just keep the little bugger stock.
