As promised, a few (slightly) better photos of my new heap:
The car'* good side.
A better look at the cracked fender and bumper.
All of the rust on the car is on and around the trunk/trunklid.
Wheels made by...ABS. Is that German? :laugh: :laugh:
Cheesy 80s video game compass.
A filthy 3800 engine cover. Underneath is similar.
After a day with the car, issues have surfaced (of course)
-Left axle is making that 'k-kik-k-kik' sound when turning that an axle just starting to fail makes.
-Front brake rotors are in the shapes of potato chips, and I suspect the right front caliper could use replacing, but we'll see when I put my new rotors on.
-Good old 3800 series II plastic intake manifold has a slight seep...nothing serious yet.
-PS pump leaks pretty good
-idle is a little shaky on occasion. The plugs and wires are new, but the coils are original and have 147k miles on them. Probably time for a change.
Basically, all stuff that can be fixed in a couple of weekends for not a lot of money by yours truly. I'm definitely enjoying my new beater.
That stuff on the spoiler was just condensation.
As for me, I'm just a college student who likes cars (and working on them) who lives in the suburbs between Milwaukee and Racine.
