Default Put away the old Bonne, got a new winter beater

Haven't posted here in a while. Well, I put away the old 86' for the winter. The defroster wasn't working well and with the new rad and fan the heat was not existant. Don't worry it will be back for the summer! (Maybe even with a 350 in it ). My fiance and I picked up a replacement though....

Yep it should have the 3800 Series III with drive by wire throttle control and an aluminum upper intake manifold instead of the plastic Series II intake manifold.
