Congrats, man. Glad you finally hooked one. Nice looking car, too.

yea now go update your red one dammit lol

05-07-09, 04:08 PM
haha, yeah I know. Not much to update though, since I got the new bumper on I haven't done much... I'll probably have to sell her to work on my new Eldorado.

ugh, kinda hijacked there.. sorry.

So give us details! How many miles? Plans? Name?

111 on the clock plans are just to clean her up new radiator chk master cylinder and eventually get some new paint on her she will clean upo decent but some spots of surface rust by the rear quarters not bubbled shes still very much solid no rot on the bottoms of the doors or anything i was surprised the crome is mint front bumper fills were original and perfect rears one was good one was crack but not to badly oem hubcaps are astounding look brand new......name im not to sure yet got to give it time

I vote to name her Skye.

My aunt had a 79 FWB, same color scheme in and out. It really looks good when it's all polished up and clean.

Holy crap, I thought my car had been stolen for a moment there! Nice find Caddyshack. :thumbsup:

That's "Sterling Blue" isn't it?

05-08-09, 10:16 PM
not sure of the name ever since that link in the sticky went bad i havent found any other color scheme looks identical to yours ide asume its the same

05-08-09, 11:40 PM
Well, I can't find my '79 color chart, but yeah, It would have to be the Sterling Blue. They also did a light blue Firemist, but it's brighter, less grey. :)

Nice find everything looks good and just a little work it will be great! Lol, I have the same dice in my mirror.
