Default Welcome Back Old Friend

Well, I am sure that many of you remember a thread awhile back about me selling off a piece of my heart.

http://www.spyder.tv/forums/showthre...highlight=Iroc

Well I am here today to tell you that through the magic of recession I was able to purchase the car back for a good bit less than what I sold it for. He took great care of it, it still needs a new top, but that is certainly something that is do-able. It came back with 2 trophies and a medal, all Chevy inspired shows.




Photos he had taken of it, I need to go pick it up today, I will post more photos later.

1988 Chevy Iroc Z Convertible Dale Earnhardt edition.
350 edelbrock
Flowmaster American Thunder
K&N Filters and forced air.

Best in show, best 80's sports car, and the medal is from DEI commemorating an accurate restoration.

I only had time to snap 1 new photo because it started pouring as soon as I got home.

I must say, very nice car. Being a Earnhardt fan, what makes it a Dale Earnhardt edition. Not doubting it is what you say it is, im just curios.

The hood is not vented, but it is ducted, forced air through the front rather than vents on the hood, stock engine is a 350 HO with race inspired parts from edelbrock and other aftermarket companies rather than a 305HO or a standard 350, the grill is all one piece and ducted rather than 2 pieces with fog lights in the middle of it, the lines are slightly different although negligible to most, the convertible top. And the VIN

Personally I hate nascar but you cant go wrong with a car inspired by it. (unless we are talking monte carlo and taurus)

And Chris, line it up my friend, and then you can talk.
