Sadly I must report that this car is no longer on the road. Broadsided by a 1997 Toyota Corrolla. That was about 6 months ago, $4000 of damage to mine alone. Obviously written off by the insurance company. Ironically this picture was taken about 6 hours before the accident in a makeshift car show. It was later presented in a show and shine for anybody willing to bring their car out. 4 hours later, boom.

I tried, beleive me. but the insurance company was dead set on crushing her. i got the emblems, a wheel cap, and some other miscellaneous do-dads from her. just to keep the memory alive. they refused to let me take anything more in the way of parts

That'* a shame. Looked like a great car. The important thing is you walked away.
