About

This was my very first car. I got it as a sophomore in high school. After I graduated, my brother got the car. He fully modified and restored it, adding a front air damn, weber carb, swapping in a 4-speed manual, putting on nice wheels and giving it a sweet paint job. He sold it several years ago on ebay.

Photos coming soon, both before and after.

1.9 L 4-cylinder, all stock
