Default Black Betty



I don't care about scratches, bug poop, rain, finger prints......

They want $6000 for a paint job, so Flat Black it stays













It runs great, sounds better and I'm sure would post a 14.0 1/4 mi time.

Whoa, Black Betty (Bam-ba-Lam)
Whoa, Black Betty (Bam-ba-Lam)
Black Betty had a child (Bam-ba-Lam)
The damn thing gone wild (Bam-ba-Lam)

last year for the big block. why did you buy it in that condition if you didn't have the means to make it really nice again? You already had a formula of the same year, right? Anyways, one of my favorite trans ams. My dad personally had a 79 Silver Anniversary car, so growing up it was a car I admired. I guess save up and keep the car solid, that way, you can enjoy it but still keep it respecable.

I'm sure he has the means too, but that'* a lot of money to fork out for a paint job. That car is respectable, even if it dosen't have the nicest paint job

Damn nice lookn ride SilverBullet!

I paid $1000 for it and it was in very rough shape mechanically....if you've been following my Back to my Roots post.
Already dumped $8000 into into not counting my 4 months of free labour.
That'* enough for now.
Got to save up to spend more on the Bonne.

Sure love the sound of that 4 barrel when it kicks down into 1st gear and thrusts me back into the seat with its nose lunging up and rear squating down.

.....and the T-Tops don't leak now.

Everything works except the air conditioning, power locks and cruise control...but who needs them. :P

My mistake on an ignorant post. I hadn't been following the last posts. Actually, if you could tell me where they were, I would really enjoy reading them. 6k is a lot for a paint job, I assume thats with all the panels removed and reassembly of the car. Great car and thanks for setting me straight.
