Default Adopted a Orphan tonight....

Well, I brought home a orphan tonight..... It was my neighbors. I only paid $50 for it, but the price doesn't reflect what it is.










Meet little orphan Shadow!

























It has 250k on it. It'* a '92 Dodge shadow ES V6 5 speed. The car was owned by my neighbor since brand new, always had syn oil ran through it. He decided to sell it to me since he no longer needs it. It was undercoated when new, so almost no rust is on the car whatsoever. The 'ole 3.0 V6 in it only burns very little oil, and needs cleaned up. Pretty much it'* gonna be a work car, and a car to prevent me from messing with the Bonneville.

I know those motors. With the 5-speed, those can be very fun cars.

Does it have the typical oil smoke coming out the tailpipe? The stem seals are the weak link in those engines, next to timing belts. When mine snapped, I had a hell of a time lining up all the marks. But it ran awesome afterwards!

Well, it'* had synthetic oil in it all it'* life, so it BARELY burns any. I do have a question for you, are they a interference engine? Please say they aren't. Apparently the Shadow/Dusters with the V6/5speed option is VERY uncommon. Had to be ordered.
