Description: Needed a commuter car after a job change. I have a knack for working on things, so I decided to buy something older/cheaper to keep the miles off of my other vehicles. So I picked up this beauty for $1,350!
Build Thread:
Current Mods: -Block heater
-The car needed tires when I bought it, so I put 175/65-15's on it. Original tire size was 195/60-14, but the PO had put 15's on it. So I figure the tires are 10% narrower and 3.5% taller than stock.
-Bought a SG2 and installed it today.

Planned Mods: -Establish a baseline
-Loose nut behind the wheel
-Tire pressure
-Grill block
-Front air dam
-Power steering delete
-Passenger wiper delete
