Congratulations 'punch, great story, great photos, great posts!
All your hard work and due diligence paid off.
You found a tightly spec'd car from a great seller.
Don't sell this one, LOL, have much fun!
All sage advice above and this board is the very best.
Your timing is good, FGT prices seem to have dipped a bit and we all know what P-car prices have done lately.
You will have little trouble finding a red car with your specs/$.
Good luck, enjoy the hunt!
Thanks for your post, the photos and all the good information about your car.
Most of us here know Rich is a great guy, he knows every square inch of our cars.
Not only completely capable but he has the highest integrity and is generous to a fault.
You did real good with your car, be safe and...
You know what they say about opinions.
Here's mine: that sub is a tumor on an otherwise stunning supermodel.
I don't care if it sounds like Pink Floyd in the flesh.
And I don't care who designed it, it's a mistake on an otherwise nearly flawless ride.
I have cars I collect that often sit and I have cars I drive as do many others.
Generally, the ones that mostly sit just aren't as much fun to drive as the ones that hit the road.
Even so, no desire to sell the queens, they have their place.
I certainly remember you Paul aka Centerpunch.
I was a big fan of your research and website and say thank you of course.
I'm glad you're back around here more often lately and pulling for you to get the car you want ASAP.
Yessir, Merry Christmas to you!
I'm as fussy as anyone here about the condition of my car, originality, blah blah blah.
Both airbags were replaced perfectly at the house, no muss no fuss.
Ford could not have done any better, perfect service, no reason to not get this done.
Interested in GM mid-ship design and bargain V-8 performance.
But let's see what the ass end looks like. I can tolerate square tail lights.
But if the C8 rear is as big and hulking as the current version, ummm, NO.
