    Bought this 78 Z so my youngest 17 year old son has something to take to the local cruises, It belonged to a buddy of mine from high school we used to cruise the wheels of this thing in the 80s. Not a number matching car and was originally white, he’s hasn’t driven it since 01 but has been starting it up until 2 years ago so got a little work to get it road ready but it had all Gm 1/4s , door skins fenders and inners done back in the 90s and the paint is really nice ( didn’t need another project). Hope to get it fired up next week and he will be doing most of the work . Not sure about that all red interior hopefully it starts to grow on me but we have to knock some of the 90s off this thing though C4F9F3D0-65E6-4FC5-9EC3-0A9687CDBF1A.jpeg A09BC0E8-312F-4DBE-9FC1-9E52F87935E3.jpeg 9148F399-A46F-43BB-9546-466FC68C5DF9.jpeg 3EF492A0-62E5-43C6-913D-AC09011B044B.jpeg 9F89CFA0-7907-40A3-9125-9A1D7F30B3D0.jpeg

    That looks like a nice car Bill. I bet Logan loves it. One thing I noticed when I saw him Monday.....He's taller than you!!!
    1. Remove pinstripe
    2. Remove side molding
    3. Buff the crap out of it
    4. Put Z wheels back on
    Poof! 90's gone!

    I'm not sure what seats they are. It was a guess.
