Well, I am the proud new owner of a '93 SSEi. We drove 165 miles round trip and found what could be one heck of a ride. First, some crappy pics:
It was getting rather dark with the ominous thunder clouds moving in from the west but I think you can get the general idea. Overall the car is good. The body is very straight with only one minor ding, a small hole from a cracked bumper cover and only one small area of rust bubble. The motor simply purrs like a kitten. Suspension is nice and tight. It has all the bells and whistles including moonroof and HUD. Nice!
But, the motor will run for only 2 minutes or so before the ECM "fuse" blows. The seller had wired in a circuit breaker instead of having the fuse so the car can be started repeatedly for the inspection. Also, only the tach (and supossedly the speedometer) is functioning on the cluster. The whole car is rather musty and there are small areas of mold on the carpet. The sound deadening pads were pretty well soaked in both the drivers and passengers foot wells. This might have come from a leaking heater core which has been replaced.
Pick-up is on Sunday and I have the day off on Monday so I should have some good quality time with her. I'm actually looking forward to the challange I have before me.
