Note: Due to a technical issue, PT Garages are presently view-only, meaning existing garages cannot be edited, and new garages cannot be created for the time being. We appreciate the irony that a website dedicated to old cars is having trouble due to a piece of software from 2012. In our defense, software rusts much faster than metal.

While we work on fixing and improving the system, we invite you to look through the nearly 400 garages that are already on the site (which can be searched using the "Search PT Garages" link above), and to check out the Project Updates and Multimedia & Photography forums for more great builds.

    Bought it locally in 2010. I have done all the work myself, with some help from friends. Not a real SS, but that's how I like it. Starting to turn it more into a pro tourer, but at my own pace. Probably won't ever fully be considered one, but I like a combination of classic, street performance, and all around fun to drive.

    The engine is how I bought it, except for a few bolt on's. I'm now in the process of installing a Holley Sniper FI.
