I've owned the car for nearly nine months now. In that time I have upgraded to an '88 computer, intercooler, injectors and VAM. I have also "restored" the interior, added some important gauges, and replaced more parts than I can count - inside and out. The car also has a rebuilt head and cooling system. Next plans include paint, exhaust, and restored factory wheels. All modifications to this car will be subtle and tasteful. The car is already cool enough.


  • Leather
  • Vent Windows
  • T-5 Transmission
  • AC
For what it's worth, it's a fairly options-stripped car; yet, it's very oddly optioned. It has dual manual seats with leather surfaces!
