Thanks for the kind words everyone. Yeah, that is all the same caaah. I have owned it since 1988 or so. I really liked the Blue version. It was real good to us as far as media attention and we drove that poor car everywhere all the time.
When we decided to get a bit more serious about the fastest street car stuff I decided a new look would be good to go with the upgraded driveline. It stayed with that look just one summer.
The Purple has turned out to be my favorite version of all.
