Hello,

I really enjoyed every second of the time I spent bringing this to its former glory. I had to fight temptation to "update" or improve on it. This is the way it was 18 years or so ago when I was 18. So it's been with me half of my life :D It will now reside in a display case, hopefully to last a lifetime.
Unfortunately the chrome has faded badly and it is still missing a wiper.

The only ugly part of this car is the uptop.

Not too bad for a teenager isn't it?

Thanks,

I think it looks just great. I have to agree with the comment about the up-top. The only real miscue on the design of the car. If you are a fan of the car :wink:
