Mine hates it too.  She thinks these cars are fugly as can be.  Seriously though, I find the 30-40 yr old guys dig these cars for how special they were for their time and most women find them to be hideous.

Guess I'm the lucky one of the bunch...my wife can't wait for the resto to be complete...she's itching to drive it.  Told me she'd let me know when I was allowed to drive it lol.
