A fixer upper kinda car.
Repaired transmission because it was not shifting properly.
Fuel filter needed to be changed.
Starter needed to be replaced.
Body in rough shape. (Canadian winters = bad things when no rust proofing is done for 2 years).
Replaced A/C motor and cooling fan motor after 2 years. Electric motors weren't brushless so they wear out.
A/C freon leak so no A/C anymore till I scrape up the cash to fix it. Besides, the weather has been pretty good for the last 2 years.
Differential replaced after 3 years to 3.23 ratio from 2.77 ratio. Only because I may have neutral dropped it once or twice.
At 220000 km, engine O-Rings started to fail, but not before it managed to take me to California and back.
Replaced engine at 240000 km.
After finally getting it back up to shape, I now know what this car was like in its prime! It's so amazing to drive now, it has full compression finally and damn it handles great. Lots of power behind it. I just love this thing. Makes short work of Grand Am and Grand Prix cars.
The beauty of it, it's all stock, save for a different differential gear ratio. Now add in a performance manifold, forced air intake, cams & lifters and exhaust, and we're talking serious horsepower... toss in a supercharger and nitrous, and watch the car fly...
