Actually, the bottom is black and will have green overspray, but not yet. Not sure why there's a green tint to the pictures. Guess the camera needed to warm up after coming in from -10.

In my advanced old age, I kinda like getting in a warm truck.
Sammy, Mr. Foreman is thinking that it should be a &quot;as sold new&quot; condition as it's an original drive line car, but I'm sure he'd be glad to hear your input. I think he's hopeing that someone may buy it well before the MCACN. I might just be bringing the 1st lady to MCACN this year.
