Well, it was worse than I thought. it turns out it'* a 92, with the EGRless L27, and the LIM gaskets are clearly failing. It has 107k on it. The wrecked part was worse that what I thought, the ABS and BRAKE lights were on, and the fuel gauge was kinda wacky. Otherwise it was fairly clean, but a big NO. Here are some pics.



Overflow tank, looks to be a LIM gasket failure to me.

If it weren't for the crunch in the front, that'd be a decent $400 car.

Yeah it has BRAND NEW tires. With only like 200 miles on them. I may consider it, but who knows, the brake lights scare me.

Got another one to look at tomorrow, I'll let you know how it goes. It'* a '92 Cadillac Seville 4.9, 130k miles, may need starter and brake pads in the front. Sounds nice for $700.
