i was on my way home from the hospital this morning and saw a 2cnd gen setting in some guys drive way with a 4 sale sign. stopped, talked to him, poked around on it and im getting the paper work tomorrow and picking it up this weekend. its an 80, brownish... yellowish... ugly, its just ugly. giant chicken on the hood too, bodys straight though. my dad gave the go ahead, nice father daughter bonding time :) runs, several oil leaks, brakes are shot, as long as it moves its own ass onto a trailer, it can puke when it gets home. od reads 96k, and he says its numbers matching but who knows, doesnt really matter to me, shes not a keeper, but for $300 its kinda hard to say no. ill post pics tomorrow.


HERE SHE IS!!!

yeah they do, but clonings cheaper than buying a numbers matching car, those things are insane! i saw one go for 80k on ebay, balanced and blueprinted. and i want something i can do myself, not something that needs nothing but washed.

nope, its a cali car. his daughter hit something on the drivers side, its a little dented but not bad, interiors not bad, its just filthy, and it stinks, smells like somethings died in it. i found a dead rat in my 79, cant wait to see what i find in this one. *hopefully* the build sheet is still in there
