Heyo guys and gals,

Just recently registered here although I've owned my car since around August of last year. I've had a few of these cars in the past but it had been over 10 years since owning the last one and I never had the funds to keep one of these on the road. Hopefully that's different this time around. I bought this car from Rick50 who lives nearby. Bought the car with about 116k on the clock (who knows if that's right though) and overall in good running condition.

I've done a few small things to it since purchased. Already had 3" downpipe so I replaced the 2" exhaust with full 2.5". I've also replaced the cracked windshield, replaced rear speakers, and added a new head unit.

There's still a few things I want to do before I take it to the Pidgeon Forge meet this summer but most of them are already purchased and awaiting some decent weather to install.

I've got a few pictures for anyone interested along with a teaser pic at the end.

I don't know why, but the 2 most common things I hear are "is that a DeLorean?" or "I thought it was a fox body Mustang". My car is de-badged but even so I can't see either of those being even remotely similar.

And thanks! Hope to stick around. If all goes well there will be a swap happening around this time next year. Slowly building up the race car parts fund.
