    I named it Shitstang because when I bought it, it was a POS. But I'm slowly restoring it. When I bought it she was stock, with a butchered exhaust and some horrible 16 inch wheels. So far I've added a full mac exhaust, new struts and springs and 2 1/4 lowering springs, and just basic stuff to make it safe to drive! Been making slow progress, soon it will be a different color, I am on the fence about the hood. Kind of waiting on paint to see how it looks.

    how I bought it

    rims and tires I paid $100 for

    2 1/4 drop sounded good, rides like crap. it is soon to be getting different springs

    I'm in Florida. This car has been about 3-4 colors, factory red, then a blue, then mystic and this orange which I really do not like. Not 100% on the color, but its in between yellow, black, or grabber blue.

    Not much progress yet, but got some steeda superlight springs to replace the ebay junk I bought. Getting a door this weekend, alone with some other stuff. Hope to make some progress by next week.

    I never even thought about it like that. When I seen the pictures of it online it looked red. I'll be really glad to get it painted, but first I keep finding small problems.

    Still a work in progress, it was put off to the side for over a month. We got some work done to it, going slow but I don't care. Went to the LKQ and picked up the gt40 intake, need to go get the heads sooner or later. And settled on a color.

    Yes, no stripes just blue. I was thinking about doing boss stripes from a 69-70, but I think I'll like it better as a solid color. The only accent color will be black, I bought the new style 5.0 badges for the fenders in black, the black wheels, tinting the taillights, windows. and doing a full black interior, picked a black dash up for $25.

    Excellent paint choice, I am jealous of the American muscle car because of that color.
