    Mother of God, this is hands down the most annoying problem this car has. Ever since I got it, I've had to deal with it. I thought I had it taken care of which gave me peace of mind for a couple of months until I looked at the big chrome bumper of the truck behind me today at a red light and...

    i just recently bought a 1983 convertible. I did alot of research and this car is quite rare. The VIN says its a GT but it has an automatic v6 instead of the 5.0 v8 and it has white leather pony interior which i read is also rare.

I bought it to use as a daily driver so I had the engine pulled, painted, valves adjusted, and all...
