Bought this car off of an ex girlfriend who had wrecked it and had no insurance. Paid her salvage value and had car repaired and repainted. (monocolor) Didn't like the lower silver/decal combination. Clean title on vehicle was important to me. Originally this car was equipped with 5.0 HO motor but just HAD TO HAVE a tune port. Located and swapped motor in from friend's salvage yard. WHAT A MISTAKE!!! used a PAinful Wiring Harness set up and took me 10 + years to finally make this car reliable... Learned My Lesson!!!!. Car runs great now and is really dependable.. wished I could have driven more when gas was cheaper! Son named this one - in first gear it jumps out of the hole quick.


5.0 liter automatic. old style customized ws 6 8x15 " wheels, new vinyl for seats and door panels. recent reshoot of monchromatic paint scheme now-- thinkng of black out treatment to upper greenhouse area....M A Y B E???
