Beauty. What part of Wa do you live in? I’m on the East Side in Spokane. Notice the fresh, red oil pan, post more B230 pics.

Got her cleaned up a bit....getting ready to swap wheels/tires, replace the random trim pieces that need refreshing/replacement...and then starting the chore of sourcing my T5 swap bits.

She is actually white not that weird smokers yellow..."California White" to be exact

Haha, thanks. That's one of our garages I'm finishing to house the brick so thought it would be fun to do a color you might have found in the mid 70's to early 80's.
