Looks sharp even with the ground effects. The interior can be an intrersting project.

not a fan of wings, but the full ground effects works on this car. I'd look at Mid Americas 2 tone seats and mod the h#!! out of the car.

Nice Car! How was the drive back? I bought my old 87 Iroc from Florida... It was a fun drive home. Nothing compared to my Vette of course ^^

Sweet car pulls off the body kit quite well but you need to get some 11inch rims and fatty tires to fill in all that space.

Look into some 2 color (black/yellow) Iggees for those seats unless of course you plan new leather.
socalman, your avatar pics always crack me up.

so you flew down to Florida and drove back to NY? I live in CT and I am looking at cars up and down the east coast. How did you work the registration and payment etc. Did you send a check, have the title mailed to you so you could register in NY and then go get it? I am trying to figure out how much of a pain this will be as well as how much I can trust the seller. I am also reconsidering my aversion to yellow vettes. Your car looks awesome. I am kind of struggling to decide what color to get. Good luck with it, summer is on the way

Elrick, I purchased a one way ticket from Rochester to Orlando, worked it out with the seller ahead of time to pick me up at the airport, drove and tested the car, then went to the bank with them to get a cashiers check made out to them. It was a dealer so they were able to give me 30 day temp tags to drive it back to NY.

If you are buying from an individual seller down there it is my understanding that you would have to pay ahead of time then get the title mailed to you to register in your state, then use the plates to drive back.

I actually called the DMV down there and they do not give out temp tags to the public, just dealers. GA is the same as I was looking at a car there as well.

Gotta love them southern cars..
