History
Purchased by John Harris in Rhode Island around 2002 for $3500. Added IROC SS ground effects package by Crystalite Engineering. Replaced entire interior of ugly green/gray color with Royal Blue components after refinishing with SEM products. Cleaned up engine compartment over time and added chrome and other items as budget and time allowed. Used as a "daily driver" with trips to town dump in the morning, afternoon trips to Home Depot or garden center for materials, and - after a quick hose-down, drove to cruise nights most summer weekends.
