Default Mom'* new ride.

I stopped over my mom'* house to take a look at her "new" used car. If you didn't see the other thread, it'* a '89 Caprice Classic Brougham LS with the 305 TBI. It has 113k on it and some surface rust, believe it or not, it has no rust holes, no leaks, brake and fuel lines are very clean, etc. Even the frame and everything is very clean and solid. As I said before, my mom isn't the wealthiest, so she worked for the guy and got it for free. Here are some pics -

For her, probably not. I might talk her into a Flowmaster or something, but that will be about it.

Yes, I hate the ones on it. I plan to find her a set of 9C1 hubcaps.

I already have dibs on it. I told her if she EVER got rid of it, I want it. Of course that may not be for a while, as she drives alot.

I've always liked those Caprices.
Try and talk her into Dual Exhaust with Cherrybomb Glasspacks, or get them for her for Mother'* Day, Her Birthday, or Christmas
Oh, and a Positraction rear end, tell her it'* for "safety"
