    Nice car Mcfly! I like it. Black on red is a good color combo. Hows the mileage with that FI?

    Thank you, I haven't checked the MPG too closely. On the interstate if I run 70+ mph it gets around 15 mpg. The RPM's are up pretty high without OD. It has a 3.42 gear which isn't the best for my set up but it lets me drive it at interstate speeds. The previous owner said he could get 20 MPG running 55 on the back roads. I drive it too hard to ever get good MPG lol. I think the MPG is respectible for the set up I have.

    lower grille is from 80-81 car.
    maybe i change it correct some day, or replace grilles with those metallic custom aftermarket grilles.

    McFly´s red/black car looks really great. I love that red interior.

    Thanks, I'm glad they didn't go nuts with the red. If the dash ,teering wheel and console were red it would be too much for me.
