......Just pulled the car out 2day , took it for a couple of miles down the highway, only 3rd time driving it since I bought it last fall. Got a personalized plate for it and I stuck on stainless letters on the back in the Corvette groves. I just don't like not having any chrome on a car, and this thing doesn't even have a name script on it to distinguish it from a Camaro !! got one for the front to put on yet. Anyways I like it and at least anyone can tell what kinda car it is now from the back and she don't look so dead now. See before and after pics, the later is abit dark in the shop but it still shows.

The chrome looks good back there. 👍

hahaha , you Alberta guys !! , had a guy here last week from Alberta, looked at the car and plate and asked what year it was . I know I'm stuck with this thing so just have to maybe get a SS emblem and stick it on someplace. Gotta admit it is cheap on fuel , 416 km last week and still showing 1/2 tank but will meter it out and see what it really is doing. Wind noise is terrible, couldn't listen to the radio no way, but driving in the high winds we had last week didn't help. Gotta buy mud flaps 2morrow , I had it up on the hoist changing oil and my new paint looks 10 years old already all along the bottom .

Honestly, it is the worst car I ever owned, I tried to trade it off but that didn't work. Driven 4 times now , so I will use it as a beater but treat it as my others. I love the color but that is about it, oh, it also has very good brakes !! I'm going to get it appraised and get some insurance for it quick as if I'm going to use it then I can't chance smashing it which almost happened last week when the stupid Dodge and trailer tried to cross the highway right in front of me. I'll give Rosie a chance this year and see how she behaves.

Watch it! Those modern vehicles grow on you and you find yourself becoming attached :Biggrin: Before long you won't be able to part with it.

I have top notch respect and envy for the guys and girls that drive the classics, have the ambition, and know how to work on them to keep them running great. I got lazy with vehicles quite some time ago. My pursuits went in several different directions so the modern vehicles fit the bill exactly for what I wanted in that area. Horsepower, reliability, comfort, great fuel mileage, and extremely satisfying and fun to drive.....all without me having to know how to work on them. Yup. I'll keep them for now.

Michael, you need BLACK chrome on that Rosie!

It is a beautiful color, and I am surely thrilled to see you giving something so "new" a chance.

As a farmer, you should be able to appreciate the fully independent suspension, you just might need to put some higher profile whitewalls on it to really get into it. Maybe a 95 decal on the side?

well crappy weather outside 2day , so I decided to stay in where it is warmer and put the mud flaps on Rosie. No chrome on them figured all black would hide better with the car color . Fresh paint job and I can't believe how much those tires already pitted the bottom , body design like that needs protection as it is not a city car. No tickets for Rosie now !!!

better pics outside, can hardly tell it has flaps, the black blends in with the tires and paint which is what I was aiming for.

🤮 You put those things on there on purpose because you hate the car right?

Bet you would not do that to you beloved 82 😂😂😂

.....actually I would put flaps on the 82 but it doesn't pitch rocks and sandblast the bottom like the 93 ( not as bad anyway ), fenders are curved different. And I would have to make ugly brackets to bolt them on the 82, the 93 I used existing screw holes and no mods at all so they look stock. Rosie was repainted last year, the Crossfire was painted in 95 and Rosie looks 10 times worse for chips already so I had to put flaps on it.

Roger that Michael.
I was pulling your leg man. It makes perfect sense to protect the paint. Now a days a paint job is anything but cheap. 👍

.....you got that right , the paint on my 58 wagon I'm building cost 3 times what I paid for all of Rosie as is .
