Looks to be in pretty good condition for its age. What do you have planned for it?

Plans are pretty simple. Going to get some new 30 x10.50 AT's for it and swap out the blown 2.9 for a 4.0. Just going to make a good driver out of it. Hopefully when the weather cools off a bit I will lay some fresh paint to it. Gonna keep it red. Figure with the 3.73's and some 30's it should stay peppy enough to be fun.
