    If it didn't have some surface rust on it and the paint on the roof and trunk was better I wouldn't consider it. The car really needs it, but trust me it will always be a fun driver. I hate cars that just sit. I don't know why people just let cars sit in the garage to look at

    Last night Michael and I installed a stereo with blue tooth. The old radio was missing and the dash had been cut. Turned out we had to run speaker wire as well. The old wire was shorting out and we wernt getting any sound. A hour project turned into a nights worth of work. Michael now knows how to install a radio.

    After 38 years the old girl got her rear spoiler. A friend painted it for us. I was a bit worried since the paint on the car was original. He did a fantastic job and the match is really good. I used my z28 as a template and direction on the fourm. The sides were the hardest part to match up. 20170219_135112.jpg 20170219_141415.jpg 20170219_180435.jpg

    Awesome car, looks sweet with those N90's. What size tires do you have on them. Thanks
