Hey Blue, super nice pics. Welcome to the board  ;D Your 3rd pic is my favorite. Nice reflection of the sun against the backdrop. Would have looked nice on a GM promo ad.
What's she wearing now? Come on!

Thanks Hitman. She's got the black velour interior, and I think you guys over at TA Specialties owned her at one time. I bought her in April of '06 from a guy outside of Cleveland, OH. I think i may have talked to you over email at one time, asking about having the engine rebuilt/repainted/restored etc etc/ It has 86,000 original miles on it.

Hey Tin Indians, Thanks. I was impressed by my own photography as well. Thought for as minute I might have been in the wrong line of work..lol Here's a couple more "sunny" photos of her.

OK Steve -- those are some great pics, and obviously taken on top of a parking garage.  But the skyline in the background looks so terribly familiar -- I just can't place it.  Were these taken in Terre Haute?  Which garage?  This is SO FAMILIAR... :o :-\ :-\ :-\

Yes HITMAN< I knew the car in your pictures from your website was my car, i just new it. She is a pleasure to drive. VERY little rattling, aside from the rear speakers which have been removed for the time being, and the windows kinda rattle when in the down position over bumps, but other than that she is smooth and clean. This is the car i had talked to you about having the engine rebuilt, or refurbished or whatever you call it (brought back to original condition). When you owned the car, did you guys perform any of the restoration? If so can you tell me what all has been done by you guys? I would really appreciate it.

RICK, yes, the pictures were taken in Terre Haute, Indiana, on top of the one and only parking garage here (7th and Wabash Ave.)The tallest building in the background is the old Sycamore Building, and there are a few with the Old National Bank building in the background as well. Thanks for the compliments.

Thanks for the memory jog.  It's been over 30 years since I hung out down in TH but I KNEW that building looked familiar...and the tower too! ;D ;D

Nah, I took good care of it when I had it.  I will look back though my files to see what we actually did to the car.  I know we did some paint work, the rims, some minor interior stuff, maybe brakes.... I will see what I can find.
