Glad to hear things are looking up. I feel your pain, and know how you feel to have your baby back. Two weeks after I bought my 99, the tranny died. Replaced it with a TKO600, and a month later, the #5 connecting rod shattered. Replaced the engine with an 03/04 Mach 1 crate motor. Along the way I had to replace the exhuast, the brakes, allmost all of the suspension is new. I think the sheet metal is still orginial though....anyway, enjoy yourself!
