Laguna 2 Door Sport Coupe

As featured in Hemmings Classic Car Magazine Nov 2013

I've owned this car over 32 years. I restored it the help of friends and family. The original block is in the car, all numbers matching. It's the original color chocolate brown metallic. I've added 15 inch Ralley Wheels. I love the uniqueness of this vehicle. Many people at car shows have never seen this model which was available for 3 years, 73-76. I had a custom gear shift knob made for the car but still retain the original. The car has the swivel bucket seats. Dual exhaust and rear sway bar. Restoring this car has been one of the greatest joys in my life. I'm glad to be a part of this forum.

This is my cousin's car and he's put a lot of blood sweat and tears into this build. His wife calls this car his mistress. I remember when he was trying to find parts and asked me to go look for certain items in the desert southwest when I lived there. I believe his ultimate award came when Hemmings asked him to allow them to showcase his vehicle in their publication. How many of us can say that? My cousin was born with some physical handicaps. I admire his courage, willingness, and devotion to not let the full use of his legs deter his life in anyway. He's had a successful career and is now retired. He rebuilds small engines to earn funds for his hobby. I've witnessed his talents and abilities when it comes to what he's able to accomplish when others would probably never venture to reach the point in life he has. He volunteers at a local car museum as a docent. He heads a group that puts on a car show every year with the proceeds going to an up and coming candidate for technical school future. He offers so much to other peoples lives when it would be so easy for him to sit in a rocking chair and complain about his limitations. He now enjoys his grandchildren and is currently building a model with his grandson. His grandson will be a recipient of an awesome car collection and the Laguna. Keiths' son already has a Chevelle that Keith helped him restore. So I am proud to be the first to give this car a thumbs up and welcome my cousin to a great forum. I personally can't thank him enough for all the help he's given me over the years. Thank you Lord for giving me such an awesome cousin. AZMusclecar

This past weekend the car and I went to The Vintage Classic Chevy Assoc Meet held in Gettysburg Pa. She had to score 901 or better out of a thousand points to earn a 1st Junior award and i was lucky enough to do so. In approx. 3 weeks i will get the actual scores to see what areas need improvement and consider if it is worth going to the next level..
