I am working on getting this car running. Then the fun starts. I will end up getting 16 or 17" rims and tires. Repairing the rust and fixing the leaks. adding a dc sports muffler with either 2.25" or 2.5" exhaust. Working on an idea for custom air intake. i will eventually get emblems and letters to put on after it gets painted. If i cannot find a body kit that is easily mountable on this car i will replace what i have and buy accessory add-ons for the bumpers and side skirts. working on getting a new driver's side headlight. hood might get replaced and customized with carbon fiber overlay and induction scoop(s). Same with fenders, they will get molded scoops or at least stick ons. If the car last it will get seats, newer stereo, maybe harnesses. if i can find the wiring problem i will put in speakers and possibly sub(s). Lots of plans but they all depend on whether or not it starts running normal or not. If not its getting sold to someone with more time and money

About

This is my first car. I was looking forever on craigslist for a cheap car. i didn't care what or if it ran. i found this under hyundai and saw it was located not even 3 miles away. I paid $250 for the car in August/September. it didnt run and it does need lots of work. I got it running the first time for $10.39. that was for spark plugs. As far as history goes. i know the guy was doing custom work and simple repair/rebuilds. the car is from north carolina. only rust is located in the spare tire compartment which leaks in from under the rear side window and a small bubble under tailgate. the cars biggest problem is the previous owner snapped one of the bolts that secures the fuel rail. i have rigged it to work but i want to repair it.
