Those photos are not easy to look at. Maybe there is a better way to post them here...

Nice looking coupe there, friend......your pride is noted!

I see your little buddy there.....showing us his favorite beverage!

It looks like you bought the right car. So many on this forum buy cars that look great but have a lot of mechanical issues. And a lot of new owners are not ace mechanics and so get frustrated and throw in the towel.

Great looking car, and outstanding you've traveled so far in so little time. I bought mine a year ago, and although I had to do some items to straighten it out, enjoy it every dry day (was a little challenging when 90+ degrees, but the great comments and thumbs up were worth it). My wife always complains when I say I'm going to the post office it takes me 2 hours to come home (its down the block). Enjoy the ride, and welcome aboard!

OK, pics are coming out better now. They were huge, but now a more "viewable" size......did you do something, or was the problem elsewhere?
