There have been many things I have had to replace since I had it. I have had to replace the clutch, as it hadn't been replaced for 8 years by the previous owner.
I had to have the flywheel resurfaced.
I have had to replace the emergency brake, and the front brakes.
The front drums had to be resurfaced.
The alternator and the battery both had to be replaced.
The a/c wasn't a necessity, but it also had to be replaced.
The heater core had to be replaced.
I only paid $1,000 for the car when I initially bought it. Since then, I've put almost double that into it in repairs.
The good news with putting so much into it is that it should last me a very long time. It's very fast as I have yet to be defeated in a street race, and the car takes such a beating like you would never believe.
Most people when I race them laugh at the car because of what it is, but when they catch up to me a block later and their jaws are on the floor, I can't help, but laugh back at them. Overall, it's a really good car if you can afford to keep up with the repair work.
