I fell in love with this car in my grandfather's garage. I practically begged for it my entire life, tried to buy it and everything. Then, on the day I graduated, she became mine =)
Been through some troubles. The main one being it got broken into and the interior and some outside trim was all destroyed. But 2 months later and I brought her back!
Now it's on to the fun stuff =)
Factory 305 H.O. SBC with 33,000 miles on her.

AM/FM Radio (Replaced with Headunit)

Valve Cover Restoration
K&N High Flow (Soon to be Open Element)
Edelbrock TES Ceramic Coated Headers
