Neil's Next One

I think I got it! After several months, I believe I'll be acquiring my next CS. It's Highland Green, J code, A/T, P/S, A/C, console, Nugget Gold interior, Marti verified. Photos look great, and I'll be heading to FL to inspect/purchase. Don't know how to add the photos, but if you look up RENEE's (a member here) Gallery, you can see them. We'll be finalizing the details this week. I'm a happy camper

Very cool Neil! Congrats man! I'd love to have a nicely optioned CS like that one but my lil C-coded Diamond Blue aka Di is loved greatly nonetheless. AC would be awesome in the summertime but that is after the resto, I gots to gets done whats I already have the schtuffs for first

Share more info and pics (I'm sure you will) when you get back from FL w/it, sounds like a very nice CS, enjoy my friend!

Thanks for the gallery link Arlie! That is a beautiful CS Neil, now you'll have one w/o and one w/a vinyl top, nice addition!

So, will Renee now be CS-less?

Wow, that's a very high VIN. Must be one of the last ones built.

No. Marty's been a BAD influence on me: I stay pretty much stock.
