Looks good, I like the fact that it comes with two extra trans. As well as other miscellaneous parts.

looks like a good deal to me, just take a long hard look at how they put the 85 engine into it, cause ive seen some real hack jobs, you need to remove and reshape a large part of the firewall to make that engine fit. not neccisarily a bad thing though, the later engines are much more reliable, and actually weigh a bit less. the smurf blue is pretty sweet too

yeah painting that car black would be a damn shame, there are plenty of other great colors you could make it if you dont like the smurf blue.

in the meantime here are some groovy 70's colors
'79 900

spring green, always a favorite

and this one was hard to tell but it was a very cool ivory white with a hint of green in it

and I dont recall the year on this 900 but it was a cool color nonetheless

yeah that mint green one was awesome looking, pictures really dont do it any sort of justice. the bottom one was a 79 or 80 900ems.

x3 on the blue color. No sense in going through a color change...unless you do it the right way and take the entire car apart.
