Had to have the head redone twice because of bent valves, because of the timing being out. What a nightmare. The second time it was because of the harmonic balancer splitting in half because it is 2 pieces with a rubber center, of course this threw it off time and now it's in the garage with no compression on no 4 cylinder. Body in perfect cond. but i think that this one is cursed on the motor. WOW! Time for the junk yard.......
I bought this car with a broken turn lens for 500. I have spent about 1200 on replacing all wear items. Well worth it! Its a fun, sexy car, gets good gas mileage, is dependable and has lots of tuner potential, unfortunatly, it has 173,000, not worth the money to upgrade. I don't know why the book value is so low, its a great solid little car. I wish I got it new for 14,000, it would be on the cover of a tuner mag! Good reliable transportation!
Sexy little bump on hood, Corvette style hood, gold rims and pinstriping. interior is small but functional, seats are very comfortable
I have owned the car for less than a month now and it has been great. I am thinking about throwing a stage 3 turbo in it to make it a little bit more fun. but otherwise this thing can get up and go if you want it to!
I thought that i would end up with a
great american car. Dont be confused
this thing has caused me nothing but
trouble at least 4grand in repairs and
replacements. i finally sold it for
about a grand for a new teenage driver,
Thank god i got rid of it.
