Guess it's about time I make my first post here.

Got her about 3 months ago and have put down lots o' money & time getting her back to original glory.













Just got a new alt and some belts put in yesterday at work.



Also got the trip wrapped high gloss piano black last Friday.



I know she's an automatic and fully stock, but I love her.

Nothing wrong with that! Well, the only thing wrong with it is that it's automatic.
