I purchased this a few months ago now and after 600 miles I can't stop smiling every time I take it out.

The previous owner is none other than Mr. Eddie (Four Father) Hill. I had the privilege of meeting both Eddie and Ercie at their home in Texas when I inspected the car. I find it hard to find words to describe how hospitable and kind they were through the entire process. Eddie is a true gentleman, a living legend (we already know that) and the best care taker of this fine example I could've hoped for. Some of the most genuine people I've ever met and I feel lucky to call them both new friends.

I have to admit I was truly surprised at how much fun the GT is to drive. It just feels like such a special car, the torque and the sounds are incredible. I feel extremely blessed to own such a special car and I look forward to learning much more about these cars on the forum.

I heard this car is in the Seattle area now? I just picked one up too. I'm in Renton and would love to get a few together for a cruise.

Welcome to the forum, and thank you for all your kind words, and for an easy, smooth transaction. Ercie and I feel like our/your Heritage found the perfect new caretaker.

We are both genuinely happy that you are actually using, and enjoying, the car with the upgrades we chose, and had the GT Guy do for us.

We believe the car will serve you well for many, many, miles and smiles.

Enjoy it in good health, my friend.

Cheers,

Eddie and Ercie

Thank you my friend! I will never forget our 'driveway test drive' :)

I hope you're enjoying that new toy you picked up a few months ago!

Yes, welcome! I tried to alert the powers that be to your attempts to register, but was greeted by the sound of crickets. Awesome car with a cool history! Love your others, too. 😎
