The car looks great and is transformed. The handling is now fluid and the steering responsive. The ride is smoother and quieter.

Dave Feinberg did a great job. Can't say enough good things about him.
BTW Thanks for the trunk treats Dave,


Drove over to downtown Sarasota and back already. Temps in the eighties (sorry rest of the nation) with highish humidity. Fluid temps remained calm and hot starting wasn't a problem. A/C was present but as expected,no match for Florida summer even when it falls in December.

They look surreal with Xmas lights on them.


Thanks everyone. There will be more pix soon. Dave burned a DVD for me but I haven't downloaded them yet.

I had the plastic cover under the front hood off to deal with the slow wipers and was amazed at how clean and original everything was. Big thanks to Dave C. the previous owner. He kept her in amazing shape.
I'm just back from an evening drive and I am even happier with the car than I was before. The engine is real strong and sounds fantastic. The suspension work that Dave Feinberg did transformed the ride and handling. In our unseasonable heat (sorry rest of the nation) and humidity it never ran hot at all. Another big thanks to Dave F. who did a great job on the cooling system. I can't recommend him highly enough.

You got a DVD/CD with pictures of all the work he did??

I was promised one too, but all I got was a big bill.

Pay mine and you can have the DVD.


I guess I shouldn't tell you what was in the trunk.

Been there.
Bought the galoshes.


Still running great. I plan to drive to Orlando for a C&C tomorrow.
I'll give your regards to the Mouse.

Stay in warm in the garage doing what you do best.

Orlando and back

Utterly uneventful 200+ miles.

Averaged about 80 and it ran cool, tracked true and did 15 MPG.

Never found out how well the wipers work.

Seems that a GT/4 is quite exotic down here. More than one guy at the C&C had never seen one previously.

Excellent news Dave!

The GT4 is a cool looking exotic. It's like in its own league.
