Default Miami Vice season 2 Scarab changes hands

For the first time since it was sold after Miami Vice season 2 wrapped up, the #2 Scarab (Star 2) used in production has changed hands.
After a 15 year search and another 2-1/2 years waiting to take possession, I got to bring my prize home in October.
Let the fun begin

First visit in March 2013

A few days after bringing her home the Volo Auto Museum contacted us about bringing her down for a meet and greet they were hosting with Michael Talbott (Switek) and their screen used Daytona.

Pretty cool day

A roof over her head for the first time in at least 24 years.
Life is good

Congratulations on the purchase. For those of us not familiar with your habits, will she stay as-is or undergo a restoration?

It will be a complete restoration to original.
She's in pretty rough shape, but 100% intact and unmolested as it was used in the show except for the risers and KAAMA mufflers, which the owner still had.
Brad Wallace recently went through the Cyclones, so they're ready other then needing to be made cosmetically correct to original.
Dave will be handling the glass and paint
