    it was on craigslist for awhile and he said i was the only one to come look at it. i'm not going to do much to it outside of exhaust, i put a stereo in yesterday and clean up the engine area. i have the seats at my seat guy getting a few rips and seam splits fixed. going to put in a new dist. and chrome valve covers.

    i got it for a very reasonable price, probably half of what the paint cost. i am going to get the paint scanned so i can fix a few chips, all in all in still looks great, especially in the sun.

    The LT is a great car. Nice score, I could even live with the paint and rims for awhile I think.

    I dont think it is the paint that dates it as much as the wheels in my opinion. Some 17 or 18 inch wheels would give it a whole different look. But I still like it the way it is....of course I am 42 years old...

    I like it as is also. I need your seats lol, I cant find repro's, but a local shop says they can redo mine. I was in Cincinnati not long ago, sharodsville I believe, I painted a transformer at the GE jet propulsion plant.

    when i removed the front seats i noticed some connections in the floor and on the bottom of the seats and was curious what all that was for. i was thinking for the seat belt buzzer but seemed to elaborate for that.

    any one know what all this is for, looks to be in great shape.
