This car is presently under destruction in order to restore or should I say build. This car has never nor will ever see the drag strip, it is intended to be a driver. It has travelled many miles per week to cruises and shows. Its gas mileage is as good as most trucks or SUV's, about 15 mpg on the highway, but who cares about gas mileage when you're having this much fun.

Mods

-Plans are to rebuild this car.
-Color is going to be Med. Blue Met.
-Interior will be returned to stock.
-The rear end will be narrowed and
body tubbed.
-New headers and custom exhaust
added.
-Getting new wheels.
