There's always something to do!!
There seems to be a lot of blue engine paint to remove from parts, like the fuel pump.

Maybe. If I do it'll be a modern system.

That is a really good color, and a nicely done coupe. Factory deluxe interior?

Just to mess with people, I would custom make a rear valance with just one GT exhaust cutout and chromed tip.

I like the idea of a 5 speed.

It has a brake booster, does it have front discs? No power steering?

Here is the Marti. It's a little difficult to read.
- Lime Gold Exterior
- Deluxe Interior
- Both Consoles
- Power Steering
- Vinyl Top
- Deluxe Belts

I wonder if a Nissan 3.7L V6 would fit, and maybe some flush Corvette door handles?!!

Congratulations on the new car, it's a real beauty.

If you need any advice on transport I recently went shopping for a carrier and would be happy to share the experience.
