Are yours 4WD or front-wheel?
I have several other Justies I did not list All 4WD although I do have a 2WD trans that I want to use in a dedicated Drag car some day..

I burn a tank of fuel a week driving to and from work, Starts awesome even when it is 30 below C..That is about 300 kms travelled for around $22.00... Tooo lazy to figure out mileage .. think it is about 34 in city.. I once got 45 on the hiway.

When we got married my wife had a Tempo, great car, fantastic milage, sold it cause the trans was starting to slip...

I have, and have cut up for parts quite a few Justies..... If you see one in Calgary... most likely it is me

YKYAEM when on the increasingly rare occasions you spot a Tempo, you instinctively say, "Frank??"

I do the same for Tim when I see Paseo. And Phil when I see a T-100.

I wonder how many of us currently own the LAST on-the-road examples of a particular economy car in their respective areas. I know I'm the last Metro/Firefly driver in my neck of the woods. (Whereas there are easily half a dozen 1st gen Miatas.)

Quite a contrast between the Suburban and the Justies. But anyway, in case you don't find a stock drivetrain to fit into the ones awaiting motor/trans, do you have a Plan B to fit something from a different manufacturer?

Finally... I can participate. I told someone today I had seven vehicles at one point and they said "Where did you put them?" I had to wonder too. "Here and there."



What could be rarer than a three-door '79 Dasher Diesel? Mostly they were [Audi 80] notchbacks and five-doors. I'm not stoked about the Mexico Beige color, but it is what it is.

Excluding that Passat converted into a coupé-utility still owned by an old neighbor, and a handful of 2-door Passats stolen in Brazill and exchanged for drugs in Bolivia and Paraguay or also illegally sold in Uruguay, and then converted to Diesel, I have seen only 4-door Passats factory-fitted with Diesel engine.
