been a while since i have been on here,not much up dates i walked by the trans am in my garage a few moments ago and lot about up dating.i have gotten her out a couple times the past two weekends.been really nice out,even made it out to the car show.i will have to get a new set of tires soon pass. rear tire dry rotting and starting to get unsafe to drive.
really wish i could do more to the bird but money has been very tight.wife lost her job,had to sell my other car,and the garage is in need of some major work soon before a wall comes down.i just cant when :(
well here is some pictures
