VEHICLE STORY

I bought this car July 21, 2016  from a drifter up in Yakima, Washington for $2,500. It's had 11 owners and had a blown automatic transmission and original paint, that's why it was so cheap. It's a factory turbo targa car, exactly what I've wanted for the past 6 years. It's completely stock apart from it's American Racing wheels. So far I've torn apart the rear trim, hatch, wing, and tail light areas, cleaning and fixing things as I go. I dremeled out the rivets holding the rear tail lights together and baked the lights one at a time at a balmy 300 degrees for 8 minutes in the oven to soften the sealant holding them together. Then I took them apart, cleaned them (they had crap inside them, this is why I took them apart), and put it all back together with new sealant. I've sanded down and painted 3 spots of surface rust so far that were behind the tail lights, a few more spots on the exterior to go. I've cleaned the whole car exterior and interior, finding some interesting things along the way, such as mouse turds in the spark plug gallery and underneath the rear seats and a solitary long blonde hair in the spare tire area. It's got a 5 speed manual now and is serving me well as a daily driver and it's soon to be drifted frequently!
