    Bet you think it would look better in "fruity yellow"?

    Gotcha! It'll be Bentley red next time. Actually I am more of a white, silver, gray and black kind of guy. All are technically not colors at all. Dark and gloomy is the look I was shooting for. It will probably get less attention in this color combo than it did when it was red and white.

    It is finally running/driving and complete. Just a few minor adjustments need to be made. Got it back from the exhaust shop yesterday where they installed dual exhaust (2.5") with H-pipe and Flowmaster mufflers. They did a great job! Today was the first time I drove it since I started this project back in November. I had a blast driving it home. Sounds like a muscle car should at the stop lights now. Feels like a completely different car in every respect except the brakes which still suck, lol. It was sweet laying a big patch of rubber with it, first time I COULD do that since I've had it. Disc brake conversion with 2" drop spindles and front end rebuild next..........it never ends!









    The engine bay before:

    Looks great now that it's all back together! Get some beauty shots to really show her off. A video letting us hear her new heart wouldn't be bad either.

    Destroyer, it looks great! You'll have plenty of fun during the spring and summer (and Floridian autumn and winter, for that matter).

    Are those aftermarket seats?

    The seats are from an '87 Mercedes 300E. I thought they'd go well with the car. They are powered as well. Much comfier than the stock seats that didn't even recline.

    I thought those seats looked familiar. The Olds looks great!

    I hear you there. I just ordered a pair of Corbeau seats two weeks ago; the Bricklin seats were damn uncomfortable and didn't recline either. The Mercedes seats don't go bad with the car, but they just looked off to me (I could definently tell they weren't stock).
