Thumbs up 1985 Florida Highway Patrol #1422

Some of you may have seen the posts about the upcoming get-together at Jim's place (Ohio) in July. In addition to spending some good times with good people, the purpose of the trip is so that I can start work on the '85 FHP car pictured below. I found the car a few years ago in Ohio and told Jim about it. He ended up buying it, holding onto it for me, then selling it to me a short time later. It's been in his barn ever since, waiting on me to pick it up.

It's an original 100K mile car, but who knows what we'll find when we tear into it. I've already got a ton of NOS and replacement parts for it, including a complete top end from a 3K mile '85 that was being torn apart to be raced. I've also got every single correct piece of e-equipment for it, including a new-in-the-box Jetsonic lightbar and JSS controller to match.

This will be my first resto, and the only thing I won't be doing myself is the paint. Jim's neighbor, who restores Corvettes out of his shop, is going to paint it for me.

Wow Mike! That '85 is A LOT nicer than I expected. That's going to be a fun project.

Thanks....it needs alot of TLC, but I can't wait. I haven't had time to do much to any of my cars in awhile, so I'm really looking forward to this.

Very nice looking project material. Another completed 4-eye SSP is a good thing! Be sure to share some photos of your progress.
