That is a great feeling - I always enjoy that 'giddy' feeling of driving to get a new toy.

Be safe and keep us updated!

Okay, as promised here's a picture of the high plains drifter in front of RAMS' house, or should I say apartment. To call this place a crap hole would be an insult to crap.

It's actually not too bad, it's bobbing a little bit but nothing to get concerned about. I found out the answer to the paint code 7P is Lime Green, which it would seem was for the 1976 gremlin. Also I did confirm that my trim code is 1HF, which is black Wellington vinyl bucket seats, not bench. That bench seat is original, so I'm at a bit of a loss.
