By a yuge margin, its vanrah! congrats!

Here's his pic and story:

Greetings Guys; I liked this thread & the stories, excellent. Well about 39 years ago this next month I ordered this 9C1.Gm kicked the order out twice. The first time (around April) because they wouldn't build a 350 Lm-1 with a 4 speed, Ok I'll take an auto not knowing that I'd get a TH-350. I took a chance & lucked out. Then again (around May) Gm wouldn't build a base model with bucket seats. The bucket seat option was $80 if I remember correctly, but to get buckets I first had to order a Classic trim $400 (?) NO way. So I took it with a bench. Mandatory 9C1 option heavy duty vinyl $17. And proceeded to order some Recaro's, they arrived before the car. The car finely arrived August 1st & on the way home from the dealership I dropped it off at Zeibart. Went & retrieved it the next day. Took this picture & soon started modifying it as I have a Extreme case of the Affliction (I can't leave it stock). And 39 years later I've changed every thing but the paint & frame. Ok the side, rear glass & back seat are OE yet. Now 39 years have passed & it's time to pass it on to someone younger. So here is the August 79 picture & a current one. Thanks for havin' me guys, Ole' Bob.

THANK you guys, one & all. I'm a two time winner now. Kinda like a before & after, only it was a after & before in my case. Anyway I want to thank the guys that run this site for bringing us "A-G" car NUTS together. As we help each other stay (?) sane during the Cold winter months of cabin fever, it was 1*F this morning. Not to mention all the Fantastic knowledge you guys have acquired over the years. The tough part for me is facing the fact that it's time to sell as my ole' body has less & less strength. So I want all you young guys to spin the tires, make some Great sounds & enjoy the hell out of your G cars & other Hot Rods. Thanks again Ole' Bob.
Ps: Here is a couple of pictures that I took the spring of 1980. Note the Affliction is strong, it is no longer stock!
