I've been looking for quite a while for this car, but the wait was worth it. I wanted a black on black color combination with a manual tranny, which proved to be a bit hard to find. It's my main hobby right now, and I spend a big chunk of my income keeping her in top shape. The reason I don't have too many mods is because I still have some maintenance to take care of (she needs a new clutch among other minor things). I belive any car can last a long time, if taken care of preperly, and that's what I've been doing since day one. Valve cover gaskets, engine and tranny mounts, the whole cooling system (radiator, thermostat, water pump, pullies and hoses) have all been replaced within the first week. I have some upcoming mods in the very near future; namely an M5 rear bumper, performance clutch and flywheel and some minor performance and cosmetic mods. I will put up a clip with the exhaust sound as soon as I have some free time. :)

nice ride 5**************
Man your ride is just perfect! Love the mods, 5 stars for you ;)
I really like the blacked out look. Great job on the resto! It's a constant on our cars. I just added the Zionsville radiator kit to mine last week. It wasn't too bad to install but the wiring was a pain.
