Will this be fixed and sold or will you use it for a daily beater?

Nice find BTW.

Thats the funny thing.. I originally wanted it for a winter car / beater, BUT being a car guy I just can't do that.

SO

What will end up happening is this is going to be my "project" I am going to learn all kinds of stuff on this car and not worry if I screw up because I think it will only look better. I am going to practice some custom work, paint, body work, etc.... you know, the stuff you always wish you knew how to do but didn't want to try on the only daily driver

I don't even know what all is going to happen yet to be honest with you.


I don't think I will be selling the car, rather, I will be doing a turnaround on it like I did with my '93.

This is the only thing I hate about being a car guy... I get a car then I want to put all kinds of work into it to make it really nice, no matter how crappy it is



Cody, Brian, Peter ---- Thanks a bunch guys for any help with the JY parts. I called Brian today and had a little chat with him now that I am awake I will get a full list to you guys in the next day or so. So far I only obviously need the headlight switch and the seats.

Likely I can transport parts up to you. I head back that way at least once a month. Probably will make my next trip in a week or two.

It can be a good car if its taken care of... The timing belt and related items are the most important items to take care of on those.... If it has made it that far then somewhere along the line it had to have been taken care of..

Yup, I was planning on swapping in my spare '93 L67 if I can't get this engine running right, but right now it looks like a simple tune up issue or bad coil.

Who knows, I might just decide to do the swap someday
