Well here's how I received the car, fresh off of the truck from Phoenix, AZ.  As you can see from the pictures, it needed some stuff.  I had talked with the previous owner about a lot of things, but in the end I learned that you absolutely need to be able to physically see and drive a car in order to get the best deal.  I wish I would have done it to this car.  Check out the specifications page to see how the car came originally and how it will be setup when finished around Fedruary, 2002.  Click any of the pictures to enlarge.

Dean Futrell has done a lot of the wiring clean up on the car, plus he helped me add the wiring for the rear wiper, rear window washer, and a bunch of other stuff that the car needed help with.  Dean is awesome at the detailed stuff like wiring, engine swaps, etc., check out his web site, www.futrellautowerks.com, to see some of the very nice work that he's done.
