My Story

Dubbed 'Project: Revive', the car came in on a trailer with mismatched and faded paint. I acquired this first generation unexpectedly and decided to throw some work at it and bring it back from the dead. It took me a lot to decide to go with this color. I'm a chill type of dude when it comes to flashiness, and I was thinking a jet black or metallic silver. I chose a color that broke my comfort zone and all I can say is I am very pleased with my choice. Not to many olive green 3000GT/Stealth's around from what I found. Engine rebuild cost approximately $1500. The car is rough but i have confidence that it will be right when I'm done.
