Nice looking car. Does anyone believe in engine shots for prospective buyers to look at?

I can see enough to tell that it doesn't have the Ultimate Evil Centermount Weber Progressive carburators on it and that it *does* have the stock muffler.

Which means there's a good chance the engine is fairly stock and unmolested. It could be stock & unmolested with a rod sticking out the top of the case, but still...

That's a pretty good price if the mileage claim is true. I'm not a big fan of those wheels though, or the pink carpet.

true - the eight spokes would have to go (plus they are the wrong offset for a T-3)... is the carpet truly pink or is it just the lighting?
right up until the point that baygeek was banned... that was me....
