History
I've had this car for nearly 40 years. Bought it used with 100 K miles in 1978 - drove it all through college and then parked it in 1987. Kept it in a shipping container for a few years, then moved it to the "garage" to start working on it and bring it back to life. Its had many lives... In 1980 I worked for Rajay industries (turbo mfg.) and I put twin turbos and nitrous on it way before turbos were really popular... took it back to normally aspirated, then put nitrous on ... took out the original Saginaw 4 speed for a B&M turbo 400 when it had the engine turbos... still has the B&M.

Currently putting the interior back in it... the old dash had been home to a bunch of rodents so I took it out and have replaced it with a replica from OPG and am in the midst of putting the interior back together..

Took the old US mags out to be polished... more coming soon.
