About “My Baby”

This is my baby. I bought her in 2003 and I enjoy riding with the top down. Although she's not a powerful muscle car I love taking her for a spin every chance I get. My boyfriend wants to put in a V8 but I am fine with it just like it is.

About “My Toy”

I bought this car 11 years ago for 3k for a daily driver. That lasted 2 years. Since then virtually every part except the sheet metal, block, pistons,crank and heads has been replaced with n.o.s. parts or better when availiable. All mods were aimed at making the car better. Faster was a bonus.
