The rust is kinda scary looking, but it'* an easy fix, if you have the money.
That car is sexy, in "Gramma'* wearing a thong" kinda way. Not much fun to watch, but very fun to ride!

j/k, with a bit of work, you've got a very hot vehicle. Don't let the big motor fool you though, that thing is heavy...

Be careful Bandit. It would be a fun car but keep your focus on what is important.

in my own personal opinion, you should ask yourself 'do i want an older car that needs moderate body work or maybe like a 94-97 SSEi with about the same miles in far better condition?'


love the car though, but the rust scares me. ask the older fellow if his sweater comes in a v-neck...

no offense, but what we have seen of your body work is far from professional quality.

thats because thats the winter is comeing, dont have the time nor money to do it right body work.

you cant realy just patch a hole and sand and paint one little spot and have it come out right, you need to do the whole pannel or the car.

On this car thats the way its going to be done on it.

The body work you saw on my car is done that way because i dont have a paint both of a spray gun, and with can paint you cant do a good job right. Also thats my only car to go to and from work 20miles each way, so i dont have time to take it off the road for a week to paint the whoel side or whole car.
