No rust which is the surprising part. The previous owner believed the car had the GT package but as I did some more research I think it may just have the handling package.

I plan on doing more of a resto mod to it. I will paint it the original signal flare red and redo the black interior. The motor has been rebuilt but I plan on pulling it when I strip the car this winter to get it ready for paint. The motor probably looked great when it was rebuilt but it has been neglected and the block needs repainting. It has front disc brakes so I plan on adding a power booster and may look into rear discs. The wheels are garbage. I like the torque thrusts on these cars so I'm leaning towards those.

The problem is alot of this will require money for which i am currently lacking so the modding may stretch out for some time.

Please don't get the torque thrusts. Every muscle car owner and their brother has torque thrusts...

Torque Thrusts are addictive like crack. What can I say. Actually I would really like some Shelby wheels but they are really expensive. We'll see. I will probably change my mind many times before I get to wheels. All I know is the Keystones on the car are horrible.

Sounds good. I know it won't get left, and if it was mine I probably wouldn't leave it either but that flat black don't look too bad.
