Admiral Yamamoto infamously said "You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a man with a rifle behind every blade of grass."
And so it should be, a nation of riflemen....
That is a NICE looking car. I do have a soft spot for the 80's rear window louvers, I think your car would look great with a set in white. Does anyone even make those anymore? Great work on the car.
Thanks. It came out pretty nice, with a good "stance". Most people go the next step, and space out the rear wheels around 20mm with hub-centric spacers and longer wheel studs. I haven't decided if I'll do that, although I have the needed parts out in the garage.The louvers/slats have been out of production for as long as the car has. If you can find a set in good enough condition to restore, they sell in the $700~$1000 range.No one that I'm aware of reproduces them, and people on the forums are always looking for them.I never cared for them on most cars. The only car that I ever thought looked "right" with them, besides a Lamborghini Miura, was the 1969/70 Ford Mustang.Or maybe the Lancia Stratos.I always thought they looked both "tacky" and "tacked on" when installed on other cars.
You weren't embarrassed.
Oh, hell no!I was expecting more like 125rwhp!
Looking good! :-)
Looks like a fun old car. I lean more towards Jeeps but I'll bet my son would love something like that.
Pretty soon my 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee will be an "old" car if not already.I had a 1996 that I traded in on this one, and sometimes I regret it. It needed some work at the time, and my car mechanic skills were at low ebb, and I lived in an apartment at the time, so I couldn't take it apart and let it sit.I miss that red 1996. It was one of the nicest cars I've ever owned.
Keep it civil, please....
