    Damn, that's a nice formy. My first was an 87 like that with tpi. You don't see too many with that nice of original paint!

    I like being the only nice car of my kind around here. I have guys in vettes giving me the wave and most all older rodders wave. No one knows what it is until I tell them. Then they ask why I don't have a mullet. :big grin:
