History
She was ready for the boneyard. Her owner no longer wanted her. She was cracked, peeling, smelled awful, and was about as base-model as you can find. I picked her up for $700, and went to the boneyard straight away; got new doors with power accessories, power mirrors, and the wiring to use them. Installed new headlights and a trunk lid release lever. Replaced the dash lights with blue LEDs, and installed a new sound system with custom amps and speakers. Soon, she will have a 4-speed automatic transmission with overdrive, an upgrade from the 3-speed original.

The Phoenix has, indeed, risen.
