Bought the car with intentions of fixing the rust and moding the car with Z34 model parts. Did some of this. The car is very reliable and quick, I recently took a newer model Trans Am off the line at a red light. Unfortunatly I'm now buying a newer car because I'll be out of college and looking to move. The engine is still great. The Buffalo winters just took its toll and there is body and frame rust, and the rack is leaking power steering fluid. If I didn't need a car to move south I'd be keeping this. Unfortunatly now my stereo system in the car is worth more than the car is. She handles great in the winter! I treated her well and she only got the best. Full synthetic oil and 93 octane gas
I love my bucket power driver's seat! This is the only Lumina I've seen with one. Tachometer, center console, seats are extremely comfortable (and my back isn't great), torque!
There are aftermarket sport brake kits available, I'd look into these because the brakes are they only hassle of the car.
