Fo sho. By the way, if anybody has any more luggage, coolers, picknick baskets, gas cans, etc. that would fit up there. I'm interested.

Picked up the luggage rack and the window visors for $20 with some help from from jweez. Licence plates were off ebay.

Car looks great. If I see anything like luggage or gas cans I'll let you know. Does the luggage have to match?

Not at all, just as long as it's old.

OK I'll start looking. My parents keep everything, and they have a ton of old stuff in this house.

hey don't go with the stinger on a stock 1600, the air cooled motors really rely on back pressure for there hp. get a header and a quiet pack. nice squareback though. you might want to check and make sure your heads are on there tight after 16 years of sitting and do your valve lash.

New parts on: gas tank sending unit (yay, my gage works), and new sun visor clips.

New parts still in the box: turn signal switch, window and door seals, shift pattern sticker, and trim clips.

Santa brought me parts and I'm just getting around to installing them.
