I replaced front tires today and used the old bubble balancer.

Yep i have had one for several years.I had a 84 vette one time that two places could not balance the tires with there machine.I got tired of it and bought a balancer .I used stick on weights but not many.It drove wobble free to 85mph.Any hot rods i have had did the same thing.Even let the tire shop balance them ,came home pulled tire and guess what it didnt bubble out.

Nice car & great info for a nubie like me with these Starquests. Looks like you might live on a horse ranch?  Mostly beef cattle here where I'm at.
Beef & hay & Walnut lumber..........
I'm hoping to start a home for unloved Starions.....About 20 acres worth.

i think the velour seats are definitely an 80s touch that i will never understand as i was born in 90... but the car is looking very good man! i love how the back windows look nice and tinted from that angle too

To me those seats in good shape are the most comfy seats made for this car.
Not a fan of red but they look mint.

having owned a set of the red velour seats i will also say they are by far the most comfy seats they made for the starquest. those things are like sitting on a cloud of air compaired to the rock hard leather seats that you find in most of them.

the car is looking good, keep up the good work :)
