I love the black IROC.. Iíd love to have a car like that to compliment my bone stock Vert.. Nice job showing and representing Thirdgens as usual!

That's awesome Arnold, a bone stock time capsule and one built to do what a new hotrod does! You got best of both worlds

To my knowledge there weren't many TA's built with this color combination and with t-tops and WS6. I've only seen 1 in person other than my own. This car looks beautiful. Would also like to hear more about it and see more pics.

I'm getting a lot of positive reactions on the car's setup even from the older graybeards in the crowd and yes the power and suspension upgrades make these cars even more fun to drive then in stock trim.

Great looking IROC. The black paint really shines on that 2nd photo.

Can only dream of car shows up here in Wisconsin as we got another 6" of snow yesterday and other 6" forecast for Tuesday night/Wednesday morning.

Thanks, we spent two hours roasting in 90 degree weather judging over 180 cars on Saturday...nothing but sunshine.
