About

this car was 100% stock and original when i got it 8 years ago. it was driveable, but it looked pretty bad. it had the original hubcaps, with some old 4" wide whitewall bias ply tires on it. the trans would not shift out of low gear, and the brakes barely worked. the paint was faded bad, and almost looked pink. the red paint on the car is original, and i'm pretty sure that the white paint was re-done sometime long before i got the car.
