Looks like the party is over for cruisin' around in MN after today. Predicting significant snowfall tomorrow...followed by an extended string of way below normal temps. Unfortunately, am now in panic mode to get the last minute winter preparations done around the house for me to get the cars out one last time.

Here's a pic of the Laguna a couple weeks ago showing off the lights after I got those all working correctly (again, thanks to you Thatfnthing for your detailed descriptions). Paint doesn't look half-bad in dim light...lol!

Looks awesome.  It's come a long way since that pic on the trailer!

That paint isn't bad at all- I bet if you send it to a detail shop they can bring it back to life no problem.

Thanks, guys! It has come a long way from when I brought it home. Much more to do, though. And, to think this car was a day away from being sold to a Demo Derby guy...

Car was repainted original color by previous owner, so don't know for sure if it was a stripe-delete car. I have about 2/3 of the Build Sheet (missing the left 1/3) and there is no mention of a delete on the portion I have. Maybe another 'Guna owner can shed some light as to how they documented stripes or no stripes.

Yes I put my car away in storage at buddy's place in WI on Saturday. I was bummed all week end for me this summer was way to short. The good news is I was able to get 1100 miles on that new setup before we had to put it away.

Car is coming along really nice Steve.

Snow already???!! That's insane! We have scattered flurries but not even enough to make the ground wet, like dry snowflakes. I remember times when I drove my Laguna clear up to Christmas Day!...in Pittsburgh.

HA!

But seriously- I hate winter. We are expecting a dusting to 2" tomorrow for the AM commute. I can guarantee that everyone will have forgotten how to drive in the snow. It usually takes 1 or 2 decent snowfalls for most Ma$$holes to remember.
