3 lobes refers to Andrew's little documented genetic mutation.

Nice job. Like the interior. Where did the carpet set come from?

Pretty much the perfect OEM plus type build. Normally I don't like tan interior, but that's gorgeous.

Fantastic car!

Ditto. We need a carpet set like that here.

I really like that you stayed with tan. Nicely done on the whole car.

We have an 01 BRG SE we're cleaning up to flip. Looks really nice except the carpet.

The important question: when can I buy it from you? Space and skillz for project cars is long gone, so I'll need turn-key. Stat!

Haha. I tend to hold on to cars for a long long time, so probably not anytime soon

We actually took this on as a test car for doing turnkey K24 swaps, so if you're serious, let me know.

Price shipped to 40504?

Only kinda joking. I've been casually looking for a cheap NC for when I get tired of daily driving the new truck, but this car is slowly pulling me back toward another NB. Nice work.
