short 1st start up video


http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v3...irst-start.flv



still didnt discuss the price.. but im assuming somewhere around 5500 or 6000 cnd

engine bay needs a little dress

and also inside might need some clean up and some modding..

also keep in mind this car is 24 years old.. so dont expect it to look flawless..

any opinions are greatly appreciated..

thanks

That is basically what I've been planning for the last few months. Pull my drivetrain and drop it into a fiero. It'* got my vote.
