i dunno... if i can fix these leaks in the interior ill buy new carpet and put that in. the paint wont happen till i have the time and money for a gound up, frame off restore. and that wont be for years. the car really needs some serious body work when you start looking at it closely. every panel was broken on it years ago and they were fixed, but 20 some years later its starting to show through the paint. once everything is fixed, ya id take it to the strip and see what times im getting. but again, that wont happen any time soon. this thing sat for a long time in a damp garage and rust has taken its toll on the frame. its not completly rusted through, but it isnt any were near perfect. i could probably beat on the car pretty good on the track and not worry, but its a precaution id rather take by not doing it.
