That is fantastic! One worry I have, though, is that this 57K mile car is the one whose harmonic balancer "broke." How does this happen by 50K?

rubber was all dry rotted and i cannot be sure of a cause. the car was parked outside for a long time. enviroment, maybe someone sprayed a harsh cleaning agent in the engine bay once, so on so forth. with the new balancer on the engine is quite as a mouse. transmission shifts nice, everything works.

i am confident it will serve someone well for a long time.

Now that you have all that work done, let'* trade SSEis!

But seriously, good job on the restoration! I'm just so surprised by how professionally you did everything to get her running again. But I don't want to hold you up anymore because you'd better leave to go catch her! Morning jokes.

it should be a nice car to drive so i was quite excited to get it running. even if my mother keeps it i'll use it on long trips i make.

hopefully there will be some updates over the holiday weekend.

Why are you asking fair market value if you're not interested in selling?
