  8. Love all these survivor stories with a happy ending.
    Allot of the mods are controversial, but love them or hate them, need to be preserved.

    Congratulations on your aquiring this mobile work of Art @Austinrod.

    I also appreciate your thorough documenting of these classic historical blasts from the past. It looks well looked after. Have fun with it.

    I look forward to further details you uncover as you get to know this Custom.

    I'd say your garage is getting full in a very good way. Neato

    Congrats @Austinrod!

    I'll have to admit the first time I saw the car in the mid 90s I wasn't too keen on it, but over time it really grows on you.

    It'll be cool to see it around at local shows.

    Whenever that happens I'll have come say hi.

    The front is a little over the top, but so what! Thats what custom cars do. Its gorgeous and the back looks good. I'm glad you got it and appreciate what you have.
