Previous car was chitbox 93 9C1 that blew a head gasket. Found this 96 B4U for a few hundred dollars more than what it was going to cost to fix the 9C1, and had full leather/power. It was originally Marblehead Metallic with grey interior.
The guy I bought it from had already deleted the antenna, trunk key, wheel moldings, and hood ornament. I picked up new-in-box fiberglass smoothie bumpers cheap off craigslist, and used a homie hookup over at a paint shop to get bumpers on and car sprayed. Before paint:
The rear wheels are also a craigslist score - N97's stretched to 10" that were used with slicks at the track, but the guy wrecked his Impala and sold the wheels to me. I had the whole set painted and put BFG 245/60's up front and 295/50's out back. I get the most compliments and questions about the wheels
I've been repairing/replacing/modifying/customizing as needed, becomes available, or can afford it. I scored another craigslist find on a lot including the headers, Holley TB, tuned PCM, F-body MAF & aluminum radiator for $500. Changed up my engine bay quite a bit with that one buy
The interior is showing it's age, but will get a complete makeover in 2015. I'll be going all out on that. Most recently I participated in the Phoenix Spree "Cannonball Run" and was up against some pretty stiff competition - Lotus Elise, Hemi SRT8 Charger(that was a beast), '12 SS Camaro, Porsche 935, C6 Vette, 280Z that was fast as **** to name a few
I didn't win the race, but did get Host's "Choice" award. Here she is on race day
And another downtown by the Diamondbacks stadium
My submission pick was from a massive cruise "freeway takeover" hosted by one of the local car promoters. This is me waiting to start that run
Here is me with my Uncle-in-Law and his numbers-matching '66 Charger at a charity car show just after my 3rd place win @INC Madness 2(trophy in engine bay)
I do enjoy driving my Cappy, and is usually my daily driver. She is showing some signs of road use, but was never intended to be a trailer queen. This one gets driven!!!
Thanks again everybody
