Beautiful. Very nice. That is what I fell in love with when I was 12. Stock body and interior, modern engine, suspension, and tires. Kinda the guidelines I follow. You should be very proud.
Off topic. I used to spend all of my summers growing up, just up the road in Franklin. Know any Delasbours or Foulcards? That's my peeps. My car spent a year in my Grandfathers garage in Franklin when I was overseas in 82-83.

I haven't forgotten about you. My paint shop is still trying to find the paint code they used on my car.

I've met you a time or two. Stop by and say hello next time you're in town. I'll take you for a ride in my 9 second ZO6

They sound great and aren't too loud. I'm sure they flow better than exhaust out the back.

Thanks for the complements guys
