Very nice "TurboII". Is that an LT1? Makes me want my T2 back. Wish I had kept it for future fun, instead of selling it for a huge loss.

look at the shifter...are those bolts reverse-threaded? The safety wiring looks like its done wrong, like both will pull loose.

If your talking about mine. I highly dont recommend it. When i turned my fog lights off, people thought my headlights were not turned on.
As for taking out the amber that inside, do it, huge difference in appearance.

I just found some pics of my old cars and; since I know I'm going to lose them again, I'll post them here so that at least I can find them next time I search

Someone already recognized the first car (I think it was sixshooter):

Lancia Montecarlo 1976. I picked it up at the factory in Turin when I graduated from College

Well Rafa, you might enjoy pics of my buddy's ride from a Test and Tune we had last year. 400 Pontiac w/ported Edelbrock aluminum heads. It sounds very strong and handles way better than it should. It is very well sorted out.
And no, unfortunately I didn't guess the Lancia as a Montecarlo. But I knew it was a Lancia!

nah, I was talking about the ones with the diy headlight mod done. where they took em apart and painted the housing black. mostly done on the newer ones since the pre 06 wrx/sti's had black housings already.

That's just beautiful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My dad sold mine when I went to Tampa.

I can't get over it. That car is just beautiful! I will end up buying one. The thing is I didn't like the ones of the following years. I need to get one from 1973. I've searched locally to see if I can find my old one with no luck.

Many thanks man!

What can I say? I have a sense of humour about what I do.
That wagon continues to get WTF looks all the time at meets, dyno days, drag strips, stoplights... At least it has a muffler now.
