It is a nice car -- and I like that first shot in particular.  I don't see many from that angle.  Thanks for posting! :) :)

They light up like a Christmas Tree if I stomp on the gas... :)  It's lot's of fun... like my own personal disco ball ;)  Everyone should have them...

I'll try to take a picture of my cool woodgrain flip switch down by the emergency brake... looked like a bomb switch... until i realized it's for aftermarked fog lights....

can everyone say "ooooooooooooohhhhh"

Great pics of my T/A's long lost sibling Jeri. Of course you know that I LOVE that color. The gold really pops on the dark maroon metallic paint. The only thing that I would suggest to set it off would be a gold arrow head for the nose. I got one for mine and it makes a heck of a difference. Very classy and ties in with the gold graphics and wheels. ;)

Beautiful car Jeri. Everytime I see one of those I think about the flux capacitor. Is she a one owner?
What's she wearing now? Come on!

John... the gold arrow is a great idea... my red one is damaged anyway... one of those little things I keep meaning to get to.  It looks like someone tried to pry it off. 

TinIndiansRule... no but she is a really super low mile car.  Under 19K.  She started in PA with her first owner and then was sold to a collector in Arizona... where she stayed for years... when he pruned his collection she was sold to a man in New Mexico... where she stayed for 4 years or so... and then she came to me :)  So to answer your question... 4 owners. 

Flux Capacitor.... LOL!!!!!  It is a kind of time machine you know....

Wow, nice car.  I could hear you talking to your car when you took the pictures.  I am sure it sounded something like "turn baby, to the right.....that a girl......looking lovely....show me something sexy.....Oh that's it.  Oh yeah, hold it right there, right there.............beautiful". (snap)

Hahahahahhahaha.... How'd you know????
