Many of you might remember I wrecked my car back in December. The cost to keep it vs let insurance take it was $200 so I kept it. Well the work is done on it and here she is:

Yea it rides a little better now that the body lines have been smoothed out. LOL

I actually got very lucky since the frame, suspension and steering were untouched, so yes it does still feel the same. I did have ball joints and tie rods replaced while it was in the shop. If anyone in the WNY area needs any work done I will be more than happy to provide you with the mechanics contact information.

I got the mesh grille on ebay and the bowtie was not complete (missing top and bottom) so i swapped the chrome bar out with my stock one.
