Looks like all she needs is some seatcovers and an aircleaner...

How extensive a resto are you going to do?

Stick shift GTO's FTW.

She needs a really good cleaning, seat foam (covers are great shape), headliner, carpet (or some dye due to a faded portion), and eventual paint. I will need to check brake system as well. It didn't start when I tried it yesterday. I think it's electical but not sure yet. I may need to call a real mechanic to help me get it going, just not sure yet. That's pretty much it from what I can tell so far but I am sure I will find more things that need attention. Right now I just want to get 'er on the road. Don't know how far I will take the resto. I guess it just depends on time and money.

Speaking of dying carpet has anyone tried it?
