and a final shot of the engine bay:

Runs almost perfectly. No problems, no leaks. Many cosmetic issues, but thats cool. itll go point A to point B.

Step one is to repaint the hood vents. the passenger side hood vent is killing me. but beyond that, i have very few plans. its commuter, not play.

was that flat black area repainted, or is the clear just gone?

not bad, clean out that engine bay and it will look nice!

yeah, its official. shes withdrawing from classes tomorrow.

my guess would be repainted because of how uniform it is, there are a couple of spots where its flat black, too. oh, theres one spot of rust under the spoiler that i didnt mention.

You know when the last time the timing belt/alternator were changed? Alot of man hours to do these repairs. I recomend when 1 of these goes that you do both to save money in the future. I had a z34 and it ran strong to 300k.

nice pickup. Should be a good car. The motor is large, and therefor makes some mechanical work difficult, and more time consuming than a 3.8L, but it is a strong motor when kept up. Rest of the car doesn't look bad either, just some paint fade. How's the interior?

thanks foer the comments so far.

as for the interior . . . theres a reason there are no interior shots.

but i withdraw my comment about it running "almost perfectly" with "no leaks".

those are nice cars.. very peppy.. rides nice.. but repairs on them are a BEACH!!

i know to change the alt you have to drop the side of the engine carriage..

but looks like a good buy!!!
