It was love at first sight , I bought her used with 3K miles from Classic in Grapevine. this was my first manual car so the sales man (Donny) was real nice and taught me how to drive her. She already had stripes and a GMPP Axel back, what else could I ask for.

FirstMods: Lowering Springs, CAI, and skip shift bought from member Gearhead.
