    Here it is. It's pretty cool the way it is, but I have a few plans for it.

    I'm thinking about putting a floor shifter in it. I've got a new 3 speed floor shifter that I've been dying to put in something.

    Also thinking about split manifolds and duals.

    It a needs a headliner and some small things too.

    Nice car. Good luck. Brings back old memories. I learned to drive in grandpa's 4-door the same color.

    Looks like a nice enough car to keep preserved, maybe put some seal out in the door bottoms to keep them from getting rustier, looks like it's already got a bubble forming. I like the plans for a hopped up 6 cylinder, too.

    New pics of the car and the duals I had put on. I decided to go with a 30 Series Flowmaster with Dual Outlets.

    I also changed the wheel to a Ididit Steering Wheel. I've had this wheel for a while and decided to put it on here. I put the Caddy emblem on it years ago. I know most of you will hate it, but the car seems to drive better.

    I just realized... I have a 235ci engine. This whole time I thought it was a 216ci.
