That is a great story and you have the right idea. I would be all over the machine shop to make sure they didn’t deck my numbers off!

Had to swap the Og intake, I suspect it was cracked it was leaking coolant and I didn’t want to risk coolant going down into the motor. Stuck on a RPM air gap, k&n filter lid, and a Ron Davis radiator. Pretty far cry from original but it doesn’t bother me one bit!

Nice car and a great story. Heck you could just keep going on the interior and change it to black!!! Unless you want to keep it original.

Thanks! It’s Ralleye Green with Dark green interior. This car was also bright metallic blue at some point too but a fair amount of the green is still visible under door hinges and mainly the underside of the rear spoiler overhangs. I wish it still had the original patina paint job!!

Looks like you've got a fun car on your hands. I've gotten a few comments about why I wanted to go back to my cars original Frost Green... until they see it, then they like it. I have yet to hear a negative comment about it. Looks like you've got the same 723 interior mine has.

Experience...... It's what you get when you didn't get what you wanted.

Thanks man itís extremely fun! The 302/tko500/3.73 posi combo is mechanical perfection in my opinion. For the winding coastal roads around here itís great. I have to say I like the frost green over Ralleye green, but I donít think Iíll ever paint this car. I just had a kid in December so a 10k paint job just isisnt in the cards. Plus I rather enjoy not worrying about this ďpaintĒ job.
