Moved to the Lounge.

Not a Bonneville, nor is it YOUR other ride.

Are you pulling the lights and such?
Also, trust me on this, pull the grille off the body panel it screws to. At the auction, we saw a lot of CVs of that generation that started herpes under there and spread out from underneath.

Can't wait to see the results.

Tell him to plug a phone charger into an empty pringles can and pull over to the side of the freeway and start pointing it at passers by. Get some fun in before you make it too obvious it'* not a cop car.

Actually, a black plastic insulated coffee cup works better...
One of the rangers at Mom'* park used to pull that stunt inside the netrance of the park where they were having a problem with people popping over the top of a blind hill at speed.
