I've owned this car for six years now and the odometer shows 58,000 miles on the clock. My '85 has brought me a few show trophies during the course of that time, but for me, one of the best aspects of owning this car is hanging out with people at shows, cruise nights and online, which makes this hobby most enjoyable. Along the way, I've made some good friends who share the same obsessive passion. With some late nights in my new garage and an understanding wife, I hope to take my "85 GT to take the next performance level. Long live the four-eyes!
