The windscreen and top donít look bad but those exhaust pipes, double leather bonnet straps, racing stripes, fake coves and auto trans just donít do it. should have gone with a tribute rally car look with SS vents covering the side pipes. I had a 67 AH 3000 and it went pretty good with the stock L6 and 2 inch SUs. Iím no purist but you gotta go with one theme not mix and match. Hereís my 80 Spit with a retro sixties early seventies look.
