I replaced the transmission at around 85,000 miles due to "street racing". I'm young and like to go very fast, very quickly.
The roof material was falling down when purchased, but that was fixed very easily.
I accidentally "removed" the spare change compartment cover off of the dash. Fixed with model cement.
The dual exhaust pipes were a bit rusty, but made to look much better with chrome cover pipes that fit right over them and screwed into place. (Available at any decent auto parts store.)
There was one spot on the bottom of the driver's side door where the paint had bubbled and started to rust.
I replaced the starter shortly before the transmission.
In short, this is the first car that I've ever wanted to keep on the road, and as an amateur, it was very easy to fix.
This car is the 1.8 litre custom 5-speed manual transmission 2-door, non-turbo model 1985 Buick Skyhawk.
This car has had just a few problems, mostly minor, and has been such a great car. It's overall appearance is very fluid with clean lines and sharp attention to detail. I've had people actually stop to comment on just how nice it looks.
The interior is laid out very nice, with plenty of room in the back seat. The material has kept in pretty good shape.
This car just needs an owner that is willing to help it achieve the goal of being the best little automobile that it can be. Attention to detail will make this the sharpest car you've ever owned.
