    It’s coming back to life the new exhaust showed up today. So I got it installed loosely for now but wanted to put it back on the ground to make sure it’s not rubbing on anything. This is the first time it’s been outside in several months.

    Polished up the trim rings and reinstalled the stock wheels do look nice but I still plan on upgrading to the 16” gold gta wheels just because there’s a few more tire choices

    Yeah a lot of people have never seen or heard of them they weren’t very common with only 150 made. The patina look is pretty cool I think

    It should be I would think there’s one on eBay now but I think it has a heavy reserve but I’m going to watch and see what it sells for as I’m curious to see. I don’t have any plans on selling it though this is one I will hold on too

    It’s too unique and I’m already sentimental attached to it I’ve done so much work, granted there’s still a lot to be done but it’s came a good way in a short amount of time

    Those old Winston tires really help make "the look" too. Simply awesome.
