|I bought the
car from the original owner in 1999 and August of that
year. Everything on it was original except the one
muffler new tires and a hose or two. It was pretty dirty,
the paint was peeling on the hood, front fenders, and the
deck lid. The carpet was stained as well as the seats.
The car had 152,000 miles on it at that time. I started
in by putting in a motor out of a 1989 with 72,000 mi. on
it and changed the carpet. Then I had the seat covers
redone. Then I started in taking off all the ground
effects and hood to sand it all and then paint it. It was
originally all light gray but when I repainted it I made
the lower part dark gray and put a little pearl in the
clear coat. I have put on under drive pulleys, cat back
exhaust, cold air induction, chrome on a lot of parts
under the hood and interior. I have changed out the
weather strip on the doors and replaced the back carpet.
I had the original motor rebuilt and everything went back
stock because there was no wear on the motor even with
157,000. So it is ready now when needed. I have done all
the work myself except the motor rebuild and seats
recovered. It has a lot of power and gets 25-30mpg. It is
the best car I have ever owned.
