Head gasket leaks oil.

General Comments:

For a car that is 21 years old, it runs like a dream.

Initially brought the car after it had been damaged for $75. Required approximately $500 of work to make it road worthy.

No rust in vehicle as initial owner, had it professional rust proof, when the car was brand new.
