One year and 15 days after the car and it's new nose met in the trailer, they have moved into their new home, where i can actually start cleaning leaves and junk out and start figuring the direction I need to take as well as introducing them to their new engine and transmission.  It's obvious from moving things around that the frame is likely broken or rusted through somewhere under the floor.  I will definitely be building a frame table.

A frame table is on my dream list. Metal, flat, heavy.

My god this is the best news ive heard today. 

But get the shop finished first. Trust me. Start poking at a new project car and it will NEVER get finished right.

Seriously, if you make this your Corona quarentine project and document it in copious detail you will be my hero forever.

depends on how long this lasts.  Finish shop is the coronavirus quarantine project.  Then I absolutely must finish the wartburg because it's basically plumbing, wiring, and glass install away from being done.

Missed your post.  Pete Gossett and Gumby sent me that within hours of it being posted.  I contacted them and got nothing back.  Kreg that runs the Devin registry is helping the new owners and he told me sadly that there's very little on the Panhards.  Initially he had reached out to me because he has someone wanting to buy my car, but it's not for sale.  He emailed me everything he had, which i had seen 90% of already.  He said at some point some of Bill's records ended up donated to a museum and they're trying to get access to them.  
 

As far as project status goes, i've made up my mind to get stuff done in order of easy to hard, so the Devin is slightly down the list.
