I bought this as a project car. I've done a lot of work to it to get it road worthy again. When I bought it, the paint was heavily oxidized, it had yellow vinyl on the front windshield, yellow plastic on the tubing in the engine bay. I got rid of all that crap ASAP. Since then I've replaced lots of engine componets, went through 2 alternators (and 3 belts on one of them), replaced all 4 rotors, calipers and brake pads. New shift boot, buffed out the paint and lots of other TLC work.
115 hp / 120 trq
5 Speed Manual Transmission

WeaponR Intake (piece of crap but I don't have a stock one to replace it)
Sony xPlod CD player
"Install" of new leather shift boot with red stitching coming soon.
