Project Mirum: A Pleasant Surprise

Postby Tippo » Mon Oct 11, 2021 3:54 pm

A while back, before obtaining Lazarus, I heard of a possible ST185 coming up for sale locally. I texted the owner, asking if he's going to sell to give me a heads up. Well that was a while ago and I had since obtained Lazarus by sheer tenacity. Fast forward to last week, I received a message that said "well, time to let her go." Not only am I elbow deep in Lazarus, but also dealing with house, work and a whole heap load of other projects but I could NOT say "no." Take a look at the newest member of the family: Mirum, named after the Latin word for surprise.

She appears to be ultra clean, not too much rust (some here and there) but she still obviously needs work. Super stoked to have her added to the family. She's not as far gone as Lazarus, so hoping to finish her up, then Lazzy in the long run. Anyways, hope you enjoy. I guess I'll start a fleet!

Dude! That car looks amazing. Are those OZ 3 piece Futura wheels or knock offs?

Definitely a slippery slope, I had this one in the works and she looks so close to my old car.


Here's a photo shoot if anyone is interested:

She's definitely a fine specimen.
