After running my first autocross, I came across an issue in this car concerning cooling, so I've probably gone a little overboard with trying to correct it. Added the Stinger FMIC kit, a Derale 2-in-1 cooler for oil/PS fluid, Derale oil cooler sandwich plate with 180* thermostat, and a Derale 1800/2400 CFM fan.

Still not done yet, was working slow due to it being 110*-112* for the weekend, but very happy with the progress.

where did you find that car.... looks reeeeeeally clean! I am assuming its a southern vehicle?

Is it all original paint in the bay or is it redone?

Bought it this time last year from an older gentleman (second owner) in Gate City, Virginia.

All the bodywork on the car is original, its one of the reasons I bought it. There was an area under the Master Cylinder that I had to wire wheel and repaint. The fenders need repainted because I rolled them and managed to crack the paint...... ugh....
