Well since this deal seems to be in the bag, you need to go to Norwalk this spring and get some numbers.

Congrats on the new Fiero btw

Wait, so you're not getting it! That sucks! Why did they have a 94/95 L67 w/ a Gen 2 SC?

Sorry it didn't work out for you.

Well, it clunks, feels like it flexes at shifts, idles badly, and otehr various little problems. I guess I am gonna go and look at the 97 SSE near me that needs the trans.

Nope right now its coming down to reliabilty and drivability over perfomance, and the owner in MI said he wont go any lower on the price.

Jeeze, sounds like we've got another Krazy Kyle on our hands (as someone mentioned earlier).

But chin up, you'll find that diamond in the rough one day. I just hope its sooner than later, I'm getting tired of wading through all your new car threads :P

Well, turns out the source of the clunking is the absence of a dogbone mount, and the wobbling is that it needs a rear cradle alignment, and it needs a shift adjustment, and the dash needs calibrated with the PCM. I told him in my email that I will buy it for $600 cash, no more than that. Other than that, if he won't accept my offer, I mayb be buying markviiisvt4'* '97 40th SLE.
