just arrived by way of car hauler from Grand Rapids, MI to here at my parent's house in WI, tonight!
Needs a battery but otherwise runs.
Interior needs TLC and some sanding behind the rear window for rust, there are spots here and there but overall not too shabby.



EDIT

Ahhh! Somebody finally bought it! Congrats. I'd say you got a decent deal. Despite the rust area, looks pretty solid. If you've got the TLC, I think you'll have a nice ride. Keep us posted.

I bought it last month, but since I wasn't near home, I had to wait till after this weekend to handle dealing with getting it to me. I was watching it for a little before putting the money down for it. Got to meet the previous owner at norwalk during the dsm/evo shootout and were able to work out delivery of the vehicle. All in all, I've so happy to have the car here now after getting a previous purchase on a wagon fell through.

Compared to my galant vr4 with a rusty rear underbody, this one is in great shape, it's the seats that will need to be reupholstered for sure.

Great car, loads of potential. Looks fairly solid just take the time and put in the effort and the rewards will be epic.

I know what you mean by finally being able to get the car in your hands.

Funny that you mention having a deal for a wagon. I just got mine about a month ago back in CA. After eyeballin' it
for a while the owners finally let it go - for a lot less than I expected. Check it out:

Small bumpers and GC Coupe grill (Quad Headlights) arrive tomorrow all the way from Nowra, Australia!

Pulled these out of their hiding spot in the Garage over the weekend.

Can't remember if they are GC bumpers or GD bumpers that I got, think they are GDs which is good because then I relocate my turn indicators down on them.

FWIW, GD bumpers came on GC coupes, so technically they'd be correct :mrgreen:

HAH!, I was thinking about buying them, but I guessed they weren't in any better condition than the ones I already had.

Cant wait to see them on!

I know the rear needs to be re-straighten and chromed, but no biggie. Your Avatar became my desktop background at work. 8)

Need a couple small pieces (turn indicators and center piece for grill, the one that came with it has a damaged corner) , the rear bumper needs to be straightened, and didn't realize there was some bad cancer on the left side corner extension on the front bumper. Otherwise I'm happy and the small stuff is easier to take care of now that the big stuff is finished.
