My 540

Recent pic - first good detail of the year. All cleaned up and shiny. : )


Clean motor (click pics for detail)


When I first got it:

Found it at a local GMC dealer, which worked out great since they didn't really know what to do with it and I was able to work a great deal, plus they gave me more than I otherwise would have gotten in a straight sale for trade-in on an old Chevy truck that I had. And yes... they actually had balloons tied to it! ; ) I took them off just before taking the pic.


Front view.


A few more pics of my car are here - not much there for now:
