Damn, that's a lot (Not to mention the constant polishing and waxing on its black 2 clear-coat enamel paint.

Nothing has really gone wrong with the car. That's not something you say about a 30 year old classic. It is all in terms of how much you want to invest in restoring the classic to its original beauty. I've invested about $5000 in the interior and other things. I've owned a 1999 Durango, 2003 Intrepid, 1996 Cherokee, 2000 VW Passat. BUT this classic stingray is the love of my life... Like a mistress you cannot say no to.. And a blast to drive!!
THe amount you put into it is irrelevant compared to the stares and the joy of driving a beast like this!
And that's the truth!
