Not too bad my friend.. body is in great shape, but I noticed a little dent [or maybe it'* tape?] on the front Passenger'* fender. A little rust, but nothing bad for a car it'* age.

That interior really shocked me! Definitely red!

I will also x2 on Straitor'* suggestion. The wheels do look weird with that white stripe on just the rear tires.

Also some Engine Degreaser + some water will really clean up that engine. Trust me, it works wonders .

Ya i know the engine is terrible. Yes justin, it is a dent in the fender. The lense is cracked too. Like i said the guy wasn't exactly easy on it. I'm suprised no one has commented on my grille yet. Oh and by the way also, if you are wondering why the rear is squatting, i just found out today while doing my rear brakes that both rear springs are broken. So that'* that.

Ha i knew someone would notice that. You know those old granny steering wheel covers? Those perforated ones that tie onto the wheel. Ya well i hated it so i took it off. Apparently years of being covered up makes the wheel turn black. That'* what it is.

If you get a new paint job and maybe some rims that would be a sweet.

I always love seeing older cars with shiny paint.

I'm working on the paint. Believe me it needs it. The pics are actually making it look MUCH better that it does in person. There are literally thousands of scratches on it, rust on the rockers (which u may be able to see) and on the trunk. Luckily it'* all surface. So i can fix it.
