My highschool car around '89. This pic was taken after I got it running again after 10 years of sitting in my dad's garage. People don't believe me that peach was cool back then.

My first car back in 1985. T Bars, Rossi headlights, Toronado mirrors...
Looked much better after I threw the bumpers and side trim in the trash. Things were different then.

i would take a guess this was done about 1990. the breeze bumpers just came out and were popular and scalops where not very popular after then so i would guess 90 to 92 ish! Wink

Here's a picture of my old 1957....Indian turquoise with pink perl (was sprayed on after this picture) and white window rubber Confused

Used to have 55' only tail lights, prelude seats, and an unbelievable stereo system. Was stolen and stripped down completely, they just left the pan and shell.

I put it back together a decade later and now it lives in hawaii Cool

I always wonder if anyone has any pictures of it completed from an SF bay area show...1991 or 1992 Question
