It belonged to a friend of mine, a retired gentleman who kept it garaged and (obviously) rarely drove it. My planned mods are adding a compass/temp display somehow and leather-wrapping the steering wheel. I'm spoiled by those things in my other cars and they should be fairly simple mods.

Hello all! Live from Wayne Gretzky City here! Stumbled upon this forum, I do have some pics of Grover.. here they are.

It's a 95 Safari, I picked it up for $650. It's had brake work done as well as some front end work.. In the process of replacing the radiator support panel, front and rear bumpers and patching up the driver's side rocker panels
