Pete writes “I have owned the car for 8 years, since March of 1991. It is originally from
California. It went to Vermont, Connecticut, and finally to NY. The body, interior and drive train were all redone just before I bought the car, I only had to do some detailing and minor fixing up. I showed the car the first four or five years, now I basically just drive and enjoy it!! It turns heads everywhere because of the Curious Yellow, Shaker Hood, Billboards, and Gilled fenders.”
