You raised them right Andy, my son recently called me from Calgary Alberta and he picked up a 70 340 Challenger...what we don't instill in our children.

start teaching your little girl how to drive around corners sideways..
I won't say you should or shouldn't be a first car. as my 305/stick car was my 2nd.. and fun fun fun..
teach her to drift corners and she'll be fine..

not really a buzzkill u have to rember the top of the line l98 engine would run low low 15's to high 14's with a very good driver. slow by todays standards

the lb9 backed with the 5 speed was just a touch slower then the l98, but it was a whole lot more fun to drive since it was the only way to get a stick behind a decent engine.

only reason the manual equiped cars had more hp was because they had a slightly better cam then the auto equiped cars


that car is really clean and would be worth alot of money if the piant was in great shape, even with a repaint that car will be worth a bunch more then u paid for it.

i would paint it or have it painted and put the correct decal kit back on it, and hold onto it it ill only go up in value as 3rdgen cars that clean are very very hard to come by

i would give up my twin turbo 89 iroc to get a nice iroc that is as clean as the one u got

You are so right, numbers are for accountants, not evil, just wrapped up in the moment...enjoy... you have made a great purchase and you deserve to revel in that...you still have to paint it....and that takes time.
