Welcome,

You will find some great people here....I know I have!

Looks like you have your work cut out for you......what happened to that trunk! Looks like it ran into a fork lift or something! Sheesh!

Good Luck!

i honestly have no idea what happened to the trunk.... or the rear bumper cover.

things i need to replace immediately are:
Transmission
Steering rack
Steering wheel
at least one new tire

and it should be good enough to return to driver status, i am looking forward to getting into something nicer then my Camaro or Lumina Z34 for a daily.

and most of the other problems it has i can fix as it goes

it does have (supposedly) new brakes all around, new rear air-shocks, new intake gaskets and some other odds and ends... and with only 117,xxx on it I should get a good amount of life out of it. I'm banking on the crappy plastic intake and intake gaskets breaking at some point sooner then later, but thats not a hard job.

Welcome to BC!

That certainly IS a project that will keep you busy or a while. I'm sure we can help as you need experience to help through some of the repairs.
