I'm glad I got to see that car at the Mitty, it's really, really nice. Per's on a roll.

Ha! I can see the back of my head in that pic - I'm famous! lol

All silliness aside, that car was really impressive in the flesh. Absolutely beautiful.

I had a 1984 Cutlass 4-door and the rear windows did not lower and were fixed. It then had rear vent windows. Awful design.

I like the green color and I think you did an outstanding job on your restoration!

I still like orange 510's and orange 2002's............I still hope to see more on this guy who was once on this forum. Harv, where are you?

I had an orange 911. I agree that orange is the perfect colour for older sports cars

I want those pop out rear windows for my rabbit but they want silly money for them.

The '02 is drool tastic.

I passed on a hot wheels 2002 today, in favor of a Mustang II. But it is on my short list.

I've been following that build since the first day it was posted on CM. It's actually responsible for me visiting that site much more than I used to. Fantastic build! (I'm also digging the Benz right now, too).
