Default some freshly detailed pics

Had an impromptu trip to Monticello and cleaned and waxed the car, this is the road my family lives off of behind the car




And my adorable copilot

Just a reminder about how old this beast is


also, note the temperature and what time it is here I don't want to hear ANY whining about the heat LOL

Very nice. The headlights and fog lights look too clear to be original. Did you ever replace them?

foglights are aftermarket. headlights are original just polished. my projector retro has been stalled due to how busy I have been. but I hope to make some progress soon

Its in the 80s at night here, I sleep in my chosen "pajamas" with a fan blowing on my exposed feet almost year round.

The nice thing is it takes very little time for the wax to dry and be ready to buff

did a little cleaning inside the car today, took a few pics

here'* a few details of my mods. I installed a 2002+ console and switch plate, and installed a pair of rca plugs for an auxillary input in the stereo. The stereo is a pioneer DEH p580 which was one of the only red buton pioneer stereos until a few years ago.
