Default Daughter's new ride

My daughter bought her first car on Friday.

92 940GL sedan, black over grey. Repo'd car, we picked it up for $400 bucks.

It's filthy but should polish up nicely.




Already replaced the tails with 960 (R/C/R) tails and bought these:

15x7 ET12.

Leaks tranny fluid, but starts, runs, stops.

If she's old enough to drive then she's now old enough to register on TB. Let her post Chris. LOL

Not bad. Looks like she needs a little TLC, but should clean up nicely!

It looks perfect for a first car. It's going to get some abuse. I have two pretty good headlights for that car if you're interested.

G@tti: Yeah, no.

Tom: I did, she wanted a sedan. She bought herself a sedan. It's NA so my insurance should like it better too.

Clay - thanks but these are ok, unless you have the driver's side front corner light?

G@tti - I have a feeling most of the stuff you want from the silver car has already been pulled. Still has ecodes, a very nice black interior with nearly uncracked dash, and an aluminum hood though.

Adam - I'll take it. in fact I'll take the pair if you still have them and they're in good shape.
My wagon needs both, daughter's car just needs the one - how many do you have?

A few more 'before' shots.

Believe it or not...


... there's a 940 under that pile of trash.

Super bonus points: There was still pizza in the box!
Must have been leftover from St Patty's Day - the pepperoni was green.

Who the hell owed money on that? You wanna give up two hubcaps? I need them. No money left though, spent on T5 swap goodies.

Sad, right?

Even more sad is that they had paid on it for 2 years and it still wasn't paid off!

The hubcaps are could use a respray - I'd trade the whole set - steelies and tires too - for some decent 15" tires.
Love to see some 225/50 15s, but I'm not too choosy. You guys got anything?

They either had NO money or got taken bad, or both. Monthlies on a 2+ year loan couldn't have been over $100.

Wanna sell/trade that rear spoiler?

Replaced the tranny pan gasket today - well, replaced is a strong word, more like installed a tranny gasket. Doesn't leak a drop now.

I think I also figured out why the top of the trans and back of the motor are covered in oil - no dipstick gasket. Slapped one of those on and will drive it some more after I get some oil and a filter for it.

Obviously needs most of the suspension bushes replaced, but rides smooth and has PLENTY of power for a daily driver.

Ahh yes, he's (daughter says it's a 'him') dirty now but the cleanup should be staggering.

Well, as staggering as can be expected for a 940.

Sorry, not here to pimp my daughter - she has a boyfriend and I like the guy - you lot kinda scare me.

I use DEXRON/MERCON by Castrol or Coastal depending on how much I need. Want to put a AW72L in that thing?
