Was going to LTI at the time and she started acting up and I needed a car to get me to school so I parked it and bought my 93. I figured out the running issue, someone offered me $$ for it, sold it, and they promptly blew the motor. ;x

Anywho, paint looks killer! Hope to see that on the street sometime.

i recently got rid of some extra stuff i had.. I found a disc posi 3.45 borg warner of a 89 formula ws6 with aluminum calipers for a good deal. It was located up in new york state. The seller also stated he would be able to install it for me the same day and have me back on the road. So i went. Real great guy and knows his stuff. This is the car with the rear in . Big difference in the way the car feels. Its a whole new car compared to the 2.73 gears non posi. The rotors and pads need to be changed,but even with the bad rotors and pads the car brakes significantly better than with the drums. little by little shes coming along. Still unsure on whats next!

Your Trans Am looks great. You've done a great job with it, especially given the fact that you had to do it all outdoors in the driveway.

Are you absolutely sure you didn't disguise a spray gun as a roller? Please tell me you're joking about the roller and used a spray gun. I still can't believe its a roller paint job.
