**Gulp** Stunning car!! Wow, I've also got a bone stock 86 and graduated HS in 86. OK, almost bone stock (muffler change). It truly is an engineering wonder and carries an amazing presence. It's simply a timeless automobile.

She goes into my mechanic tomorrow to have a look see. I did a PPI at the shop that did extensive work back in 2005 on the car before buying her. The valves were adjusted than so I'm assuming they checked the head studs.......we'll see. Brake flush and oil change tomorrow to play it safe.

Can't wait to drive her again.

I believe most of us understand your feelings, but it is a matter of time until you wake up from the dream realizing that IT could be better "just a small mod"; then, well " I already did that..."

I already have a very simple hint for you: lower it some... it will improve stance and handling.

Welcome to the club and enjoy it!

Oil change and brake flush complete. AFR was calibrated. The car had the original V-belt on it! I changed both belts to play it safe. The took kit has the original replacement belt as well -kinda cool.

Mods? H4's, New bushings and new Torsions - thats it. She'll stay stock............hopefully.
