09-01-11 Welcome new club member William Maxwell from Battle Ground, Washington.  Bill is in the process of restoring this car, and has some decisions to make.  His 1977-Y82 classic came with some rather strange options.  Firethorn red interior, with white vinyl seats, and the radio delete option.  He wants to make it a black on black Smokey and the Bandit style car, but with rare options like that in a Y82, he may have a one of one that if restored to the original options, could make it more valuable.
