Thought I would share a walk around of my ‘82.

Yes, it’s a crossfire.
Well... sort of.
But not really.
There’s not much left of the OE system anymore actually.

But that’s okay. The car has been in my family for 30 years, so between my dad and I, we’ve tried to keep it looking correct(-ish) but upping the capability of what it can do performance wise.

It’s a mid-fours 0-60mph car. Looks stock to the eyes of most folks until it cranks over.

It’s a lot of fun to drive- and even more fun when people do a double take when they see the OE air filter box.
