I've always liked the state of your car and how you try to keep it clean. I'm glad to see it'* still working out for you. When will you put into action your tint, wheel, and tint plans? Summer time or later? With the West coast'* lack of winter salt in mind, I see no use for the old wheels. Do you have plans for drag slicks or something of the like with those?

No plans yet. I want to get the rear suspension rebuilt and upgrade the sway bar first. The wheels are only 15'*. This car won't ever see the track again, and they are too small for the 2k. I will be keeping them for other plans. I have another mod in mind for those.

The interior shot reminds me of stepping into my late wife'* LeSabre. Car is incredibly rust free and sharp looking. Did You paint the engine cover? Very nice touch.

I painted the cover, valve covers, front cover and water pump, and intake. I had to do a teardown for the infamous code 41 (cam sensor). I replaced all the gaskets, new waterpump, timing set and cleaned it all up. 20 yrs old, 135000 miles and no leaks. I just got done doing the front suspension. 32mm swaybar, new ball joints, tie rod ends, and end links. And still not done.
