Hey guys, I figured this was a good place for some beauty shots of my car. I just picked her up on 6/6/17 from a kid who was here in the States as a student and just finished his internship so he was slated to head back home to China. He got the car as his daily driver because he'd always seen them in action movies and thought they were cool. He was fairly motivated and I took it off his hands for $5500.

It's apparently a former Napa County Sheriff's vehicle, and I am guessing it was a slicktop due to no mounting holes for a light bar, but plenty for spotlights, antennae, push bars, etc. It only has 96k and 1750h on it and still purrs like a kitten. I have a few cosmetic things I'd like to do inside but it's in really great shape so those should be limited.

Aside from my daily driver, I sold my motorcycle to get her so she will take the bike's place in what I do with the Warriors' Watch Riders. Check out the link in my sig for more info, but we basically do motorcycle/car escorts for military members coming home from duty as well as escort the fallen to their final resting place. This car gets a lot of attention for obvious reasons so it'll be a great addition to our little fleet.

I also love the prospects of using this car to transport my little ones. I have a 2 year old daughter and another girl on the way and having a huge back seat, floors that can be hosed down and a trunk big enough to live in will make the car a great supplement to our *sigh* minivan.

Anyway, here she is. I'm most excited for my new plates to come in. They're the black California 1960s legacy style and will match my screen name exactly. smile

Looks great! Sand and spray up those wheels to match the rest of the car when you can to complete the package.

Is that Sun Valley Mall in the background?

That is absolutely at the top of my list of things I want to do. The center caps polish up nicely but yeah, the wheels could use a nice new coat of some satin black.

And yes, that is Sunvalley. I took those during Game 5 of the NBA Finals so the parking lot was nice and empty. smile

Haha! I only lived in that area for a year or so but that background stuck out to me.
