Well, it does have three flaws. The previous owner left two scrapes along the other side of the car (DAMN those bank pylons ) and the lovely marks on the bumper from getting rear ended, discussed earlier in the thread. Not quite showroom, but she has been garage kept for all of her carly life.

I need to post a picture of the bumper sooner or later.

hehehe. I really don't have many bragging rights under the hood right now, but once I get the money saved up to work on her a little bit, beware!!! It'* gonna take a couple grand to get all the things I want to get done done. She'll be at the meet next summer for sure, after a tune-up, some ding repair, and a REALLY GOOD detailing. Not to mention a very tired owner from doing all this by hand...

Going to need some help with the sound system VERY soon. Any suggestions? And will I have to damage the area surrounding the old radio to get a CD player in? I'd like something besides AM/FM, but not if it'* going to hurt my car. Not that I'm overprotective or anything

Want MP3? What color is your dash, does matching light colors matter?
