THE STORY:

PROJECT BREATHLESS is a 1972 GRAN TORINO to travel AMERICA to help make Pulmonary Fibrosis a house hold name. She was my first love I would say love at first sight back in 1977 me 18 years old she looked so fine with her body lines. In 2003 just as my youngest son turned 18 and money would be freed up and with many years of fabrication skills I was going to restore her for my 5 kids and now going on 10 grand children. But dreams and motives changed with time running out seeing in 2003 they gave me a 20 to 30 percent chance to live 2-5 years do to PULMONARY FIBROSIS. I have spent all of my funeral and buryal and even my plot money to make PROJECT BREATHLESS trying to reah all of the car guys and gals out there trying to make Pulmonary Fibrosis a house hold name in order to prevent this disease seeing there is no cure and very little treatment options just a lot of pain and fear of suffocating to death. I have spent over $30,000 in labor cost on thing that I would have done my self if this disease hadent hit me. and another a least $50,000 on parts to make this car the talk of the car world and maybe get her into the magazines to get the word out about Pulmonary Fibrosis. My bucket list has to do the 2011 HOT ROD MAGAZINES POWER TOUR to reach the car world about this disease that Kills one AMERICAN every 13 minutes and has already taken some prtty cool guys like MARLEN BRANDO AND EVEL KNIEVEL AND SOON OUR FUNNY GUY JERRY LEWIS and still nobody has heard of this disease.
Please any body a few buck here and there will add up to some thing toward the labor cost. And if your are a shop owner who buildes great hot rods I am in WISCONSIN and would pay to ship BREATHLESS to your shop for free labor just to finish this 30 year old dream before PULMONARY FIBROSIS FINISHES ME. I can tell things are changing and not even the oxygen tube in my nose helps my fear of suffocation because my lungs are so scarred from where I worked and caused my PULMONARY FIBROSIS lung scarring and with no cure PROJECT BREATHLESS will be my voice when I am gone and can no longer speek for those with Pulmonary Fibrosis.
