    Reminds me of "Christmas Story", "He skipped the "tripple dare you" and went straight for the throat, he threw out the DAD card.

    That invoice is cool, too bad they didn't go to a 4 bbl carb and maybe dual exhaust. Very cool car, for the times.

    My personal opinion would be these werent sold to other dealers as the decal says Ths Stabber by Pugmire and why would a dealer want to sell a car with another dealerships name on it? When another dealer could go and have thrush side pipes, etc... added for a customer, these were not hard to find parts pugmire installed, just dressed the car with a sportier package. But who knows?

    Any changes to running gear would have voided factory warranty, so cosmetic only.

    Back in the late 80's early 90's, I worked at a place called Spoilers R Us. Three guys and me.. Anyway.. We fabricated and installed ground effects on Sentras, 240's and Hardbodys. You could only get the car with the spoilers at one dealership. They were selling like hotcakes so why would they want to trade? Seemed competitive to me..

    Yeah, those aren't the Thrush....those are like mine. They are the Sidewinders. I know they were part of the Bear Cat package, don't know about the Stabber package.
