Default Got another SS

A few years ago I had an 88 SS and sold it and bought a Chevelle which I really didn't like that much. A few weeks ago I started looking for another 4TH Gen SS but really didn't want to buy a project; I looked at many 87s and 88s (I wanted the newer taillights) and then settled on, what I think a really nice 87 SS. The last owner had it for five years and spend a lot of money on it: new GM 350/290HP crate engine, March serpentine drive, Foose 17" wheels, Dakota Digital gages etc, etc. He completed two Hot Rod Powertours with the car and even won some shows. And yes, the paint job is five years old.




The car wasn't cheap but it really just needs a few things to bring it up to make it "mine".

Ooops, I am not sure why the images are so big. Didn't mean to do that.

Agree, not a bad album but it didn't come with the car, the photos are from the previous owner. She is sitting in my garage until the weather breaks, in the meantime I am buying and gathering up parts I want to replace. Mostly maintenance items, already bought all new door and window switches, locks and had a small flaw on the driver seat fixed. I also will put the 86 door, trunk and front fascia decal on because I like them better then the 87/88 version.
