When it comes out of mothballs it will be getting LOTS of new stuff, wheels, suspension, braking, other mechanical bits and lots of cosmetic stuff. When it pulls up next to any other car of any make - it will leave the same impression as it did in 85.

Thanks for the info. I have DR sway bars so I don't want to go too stiff on the springs. I'll call Bilstein and see what they say about the acceptable "range" of spring rates they can handle before needing to be re-valved.
