Well first off, the car was 30 years old, so anything that went wrong with the car was age's fault in my opinion.
About half of my trunk had rusted before I repaired it. Half of my rear quarter panels had rusted out.
The air and heat and defroster never worked when I got it, but that was because the guy before me disconnected it, and I removed it all together except for the heat.
One of the freeze out plugs gave way in my driveway a week after I got it, from rust, and the windshield wiper fluid holder cracked from age.
What finally put Christine in the showroom in the sky, was I couldn't afford new tires, and my master cylinder was going too, and on the way to school in February, on an S turn in ice, I lost it, and after trying to correct (AND DOING IT WELL I MIGHT ADD) twice, I turned too far out of the skid, and the car just slid forward on my bald tires and hit a tree doing 40 mph. The frame bent, and I hit the motor so hard that it knocked the transmission off its mounts, and put the rear axle through the gas tank.
That car was my first car, and probably my greatest memory to this date. I loved that car more than life itself.
I was in the Long Island Mopar Power Club, even though the car was a work in progress when I had it.
I upgraded the 2 bbl manifold and carb up to a 4bbl 600 CFI Holley with an LD4B Edelbrock aluminum manifold. I removed all the smog equipment and air conditioning, and any other weight the car had to speed it up. Added M/T valve covers with valve extensions so I could adjust the valves if need be.. What a beauty it was.
The suspension, even for being 30 years old, handled like a dream. Chrysler really knew what they were doing with torsion bars.
If you have one of these beauties, don't be stupid, and leave the car at home until you can afford some tires and a master cylinder for me please.
