The Distraction

My '88 finally arrived from New Hampshire, and the first thing I did was buff n wax to remove(or at least temporarily hide) 32 years of oxidation.  I proudly present, The Distraction, so named, because another friend says it will distract me from working on the '68 it sits beside in the shop!  :shrug:, I'm an equal opportunity slacker, so they'll both be begging for attention!  LOL.

VERY nice!   I absolutely love it.  I wish mine was the blacked out XR7....

What are the plans for it?

For now, sort out the issues with the oil leak and a/c.  Someone also painted the intake with chrome paint that looks like azz now, so I'll remedy that.  May see if a paintless place can pop some of the more egregious dings out.

Other than that, the plan is to enjoy a long time desired car!

Oh, may replace shocks.....tended to "float" quite a bit.

Also thinking about a modern double-din stereo, since I don't have the EQ.........any info people have discovered on that would be appreciated.......

Hope you are still enjoying this ride.

I have had mine for almost 33 years.

My wheels were originally grey. I repainted them black and have had to repaint them several times over the years.
This project is stressing me out, I love it !!!
