About the only thing to take this car to the next level would be a refresh on the paint. It shines well but has some nicks/dings. Very good driver quality and has won several local shows the way it currently is. There is no frame, floor pans, trunk rust at all. I've had it for 3 years and have kept it in the garage at all times. There is a few bubble spots at the bottom of rear quarters and drivers door I was gonna fix when I got it painted. The current paint job is about 13 years old.
If you need any specific pictures let me know. I have been all over this car and it is a solid vehicle.
