[ Long story short.....this is the 1st car I ever had. I ended up destroying it about 5 months after I got it when I got tangled up with a full-size Dodge van. It started it's life as an '80 RS with 14" N90 wheels. It was a factory grey car with white interior. When I bought it back in 1993, someone had painted it RED all over.....in the door jams, under the trunk lid, etc. They covered it pretty well. It sat for 2 years while I saved up money to 'rebuild' the entire front end. I ended up buying a Z28 front clip and hood from a '79 that had been hit hard in the rear. I had the whole car scuffed and primed and drove it that way for a loooong time. Tore up the transmission a couple of times and then decided I wanted more power. And during all that....life happened with a new wife and baby, so the car was put on hold. It sat and sat, until I decided I'd had enough. The elements of nature were deteriorating the car fast. Here are some pictures through the years until recently.
