1980 L-82 Dark Matallic Blue
My name is Buck and I live in Baytown Texas. All my life I've wanted a Vette and last year a 1980 L-82 all original, except motor, fell in my lap for a price that I couldn't pass! She now as of yesterday has 50,000 miles on her and counting. I also own an '04 stang that has turned into a garage queen due to the fact that I just don't like driving it anymore. lol Totally plan on trading the stang in on the new camaro when it comes out.:upthumbs

Since buying the L-82 I've spent lots of time and $$ getting everything back to where she should be and now I'm down to my really big money items...
She's still got the original paint and after 19 years of being in storage it's shot!! The seats are still original and the leather is shot as well but all the other big things that needed replacing as well as small things have been done or are being done.
Anyone with any suggestions or freebees;) comments welcome. lol
