Hey Guys,

So as some of you may know, I put that 95 MAB Washington State 9C1 that I'd forgotten about and had parked for the past year and a half back together and on the road. That poor, neglected car has been totally ignored since I took it off the trailer in Novermber '12. Any time I went to start it, it started. EVERY time. And I never once disconnected the battery or had to jump start it. Sometimes it sat for more than 6 months! AC blows nice and cold after a charge, too! How can I NOT drive the most reliable car in my possession?

Anyways, here's some before and after action:










What a difference the early tails and a wide set of wheels and tires can make, huh? Oh, and that 79 Z28 scoop is totally hacked on there, but I didn't damage the hood. I was covering a spot where the paint had lifted off... Wink And for the record, you CAN fit 275/60's all around on 15x8's with 3.75" BS on a stock height 9C1. Smile


It's the right color. There isn't a straight panel on it. It needs so much work... I think it looks so tough and badass like it is, that I don't even want to lower it! Say it ain't so! Very Happy



I've got a set of charcoal leather bonnies and an S10 console that I'll throw in it... And drive it forever. Or not. Wink

Dude, it's about time, I only harassed you 87 times on FB to do something with that car...dents or not it's cool! I'm happy to see it out and about.

I did, actually! Thanks for the heads-up! Smile And I got them via a delivery chain within the club. I love this place. Smile Thanks Big Paulie and Al for getting them to me! Smile

Yup! I would have grabbed those if I had something to put them in, they looked like they just needed basic cleaning from butt-dirt, kehd. I'm glad someone on here grabbed them. I asked my dad if he wanted them for my old Blazer since the driver's seat is broken and he has the backrest propped up...he said no and then I forgot about them.  Laughing

It's amazing what a good washing can do. I've given some of my most hopeless looking junkers a power washing (best tool ever invented) and they looked great!
