I assume its the rusty Gold Coupe, if so i think 700 is a good buy if the car is complete, if its solid its a GREAT buy, but it looks like it needs work. Thats a 74, that the only year to have that front end and those tail lights, 75-78 they changed the front slightly, and the tail lights, plus 75 saw the big shock absorber bumpers. Good luck, cant wait to see more.

for the pics, you need to post them on a third party site like imageshack, then post the url on here.
Have a look at my rx4 here.

There's no way i would use that for anything other than a parts car, but thats me.
All the best of luck to you and i hope you do well, i look forward to the resto thread of this car.

Rather than restore it, I would do something interesting with it. Make it into a track day car or something along those lines.

Matt Black, wide steel rims, throw together 13b with a dirty big weber on it would be cheap fun.
