About “Rose”

I bought this about 2 years ago. The interior was shot and the motor was a piece of crap. So I started to slowly piece together the interior. Seats where first, then the dash front and back, then center console, then door panels. After i got the interior done I threw some nice bullet hole rims and fat tires on it.
