      I found this 1981 here on Vortex, I picked it up on Tuesday in Greensboro, NC. The owner has had it since 1985. It has been sitting in his garage for years, it is going to need some TLC, but is rust free, and has some nice period parts. It was resprayed in Black, but I will probably return it to the original Cirrus Gray.. I will post more pics soon.

      nice score. I emailed about that one, too. I already have one 81S in Cirrus Gray (that is kinda close to running actually), and there was no way I could justify another one with the wife. Glad to see it stayed in NC.

      The bumper is going back on, the previous owner wrecked the car, and did not properly repair or replace the rad support, I found a donor car and now have a replacement. However I am not going to have time to replace it before SOWO.
