hello everyone. i just purchased this car a few weeks back at work. the car was a trade in and 400 bills was too hard to pass up. when i first looked at it the water pump was leaking (niagra falls style) so i replaced that and also did the timing belt and front seals wile i was in there. other work done was rear tailshaft seal/bushing, 2 snow tires, and other little bits and pieces

as you can see the car is poop :poo: brown and the body is in decent shape (i can't tell if shes been around the block)

Interior Upgrades:

the next projects:
a/c delete p/s pump (mabey a manual rack? and input on how that rides would be nice)
wheels and suspension. i have a set of dracos but am really looking for hydras. i also want to lower this car quite a bit and upgrade the swaybars, struts, and shocks, panhard, and torque rods, and redo the bushings with poly. it sucks being on a tight budget and only being able to afford junkyard parts but what are you gonna do? the front seat is shot so i ordered a lower seat foam from Dave in soCal.
shes automatic now but i have an m47 i can throw in her for the time being
thanks for looking and tell me wutchya think

You have no clue how much I envy your front end set-up. As for the manual rack, I drove one (sorta) on my old 242. It had some wide 225s on it and it was fine with me honestly. At a dead stop things were a little tough, but above 5mph or so it was fine.
