About “My Keeper”

This painting is a George Trosley Original painting that my wonderful wife gave me for Christmas.

I bought this car when I was a Junior in High School. I dated my future wife in it. We also drove it on our honeymoon. I sold it shortly after we were married. I bought it back 15 years later. It had been off the road the whole time.

After a massive restoration, it is worth WAY more to me than to anyone else.

About “Marisa”

This car is 20 years old with 103k miles, and ALL STOCK. I bought it [as the second owner] for $1500, it was originally purchased with options for $16,711.00. For it's age it's a great car, but of course, it has all the things that come with an aging F-body. If I had more money it would look even better.
