1982 Ford Meteor GA 1.5 Stock
It has treated me well for a first car!
My flange gasket blew, Cheap to fix.
Brake line cracked, Cheap to fix.
Manifold cover started glowing red, since been removed.
My Meteor is quite slow, almost seems like it does 0-100 kms in about 20 seconds.
I was wondering if anyone had any ideas or suggestions, that I could do to my car, remembering I'm poor, to make it go faster and look better.
All advice would be appreciated.
I have had my little beast doing 170 km's, but decided to slow down, as I was going down hill and I swear it had the death wobbles.
I want to get a body kit or something for it to make it look better and take off the strips on the doors and quarters.
Let me what you think.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I actually have a question in relation to my 1982 Ford Meteor. The engine has been cutting out whilst driving. It only happens when I have been at a red light and just about off again, or at a round-about when I need to slow down. The car has now been at the mechanics for just over 2 weeks, and he cannot figure out the problem. He has checked and doubled checked the dif, carburetor, the needle value, the petrol tank for a possible "build up" still to no avail.
I would appreciate any feedback/comments. We really stuck on this one...thanks.

Simply change the fuel filter!

That's what I did to mine. It's still all stock under the hood though; just tuned it a little.
