VEHICLE STORY

Found this little beauty in bone-stock condition with 170k miles on it. Got it for $1,500 because PO didn't want to dig into why it was running so poorly. Turned out to be some missing nuts and studs from the DP to turbo and the turbo to exhaust manifold. So added some helical inserts, got new hardware/gaskets, fought the tight access to the friggin turbo for a couple of hours, and all is now well. It's got all the available options (A/C, LSD, cruise, premium Bose system, etc.) so I'm keeping the mods limited to things I can easily undo if I ever decide I want to sell it. All the original parts are napping in my garage attic :-)
