Future Plans:
full restoration. I want to put this car into better shape than it was at the dealership. I will convert my 302 to a high output screamer, jam a turbocoupe 8.8 with discs in the rear, 5 lug swap all around, and 17 inch 03 cobra rims. After the mechanical goodies, Ill buy a car that will just run forever (ls400) and will dissasemble the tbird for a dipping. I plan to have this car for many years and will probably be buried with it. I love it.
