To best of my Memory so far this is all I can Think of. I was a Stikler for care and up keep but it has been sitting & just needs someone who can devote giving it some TLC. There is no sense it letting it sit when someone can enjoy it. I was Stopped at a light in my Beautiful ’95 Supercharged Luxury Riviera and had a Cargo Truck Slam into me and can no longer take care of this last of the Short Stroke Big Bore V-8’s Please give it a Good Inside Home .
