These areas need to be addressed:
High pressure hose for SLS leaking slightly (Have new hose, just not installed)
Fan clutch (clutch is shot, but I am currently putting together an electric fan setup)
I'll post pics as soon as it's washed and waxed. Paint is great w no fading whatsoever. There are the occasional dings, and the passenger door has a quarter sized dent. Probably from a grocery cart or something.
Call me with questions, 469-955-5992, or pm me. I have the car in the shop to get a slight miss taken care of, then I'm parking it until it sells.
Make me an offer, clear title in hand. I'll also consider trade if you have old American muscle (Nova, SWB pickup, Chevelle, Firebird, etc.)
We're adding a little something to this month's sales contest. As you all know, first prize is a Cadillac Eldorado. Anybody want to see second prize?
Second prize is a set of steak knives.
Third prize is you're fired.
