Yeap i got a new whip that just fell in my hands from the hell i dont know where this was hiden and during the flod a few weeks back i just happen to went today for mere coinsidence and see this familly tearing a house appart to start the rebuild and the barn in that hose gets a total loss from the insurance and all inside it too, so the car was going to the recycle yard but i stop and askto tell the long story short the car is at hom and it is in almost untoched condition, water didnt get to it at all just to the bottom of the wheels it got some details but very minimal, No rust whatsoever, so this is the one i will use as a dailly as soon as i can deal with it! for now here are some crappy phone pictures so you can enjoy my luck!

here more pictures of this beauty still dirty and the paint will shine just perfect i try it on the 1/4 pannel and it is just nice, the interior still dirty i know after some TLC it will look just like brand new out of the showroom, I took the bumpers out to check for rust and found 0, none, nada of rust and also fix the front grill & lower valance that looks like it was towed by the bumper but it was just the grill plastic pins that blew out and it happens i got a lot of them i snap em back in place and PRESTO the lower valance wasnt bad it was just a litlle bent and by hand i manage to submit it into its original perfect stance ;) !

Here are some engine shots.
And guess what? I start it up and starts at the first try with no funny noises other than a faulty water pump, idle at choke doing 1400 rpm's and when warmed up it just went to a perfect idle of 800 rpm's with no misses or any other issues, A/C works perfect and radio too with a separate head unit equalizer and casette player. just amaizinglly clean and no smoke at all!

How lucky i am??????? :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

The used tire shop in town has one of these in it's show room randomly. It's tan, not sure of the mileage, but I've never seen it leave the showroom, and it looks brand new :D. I'll get pics :D.

Nice find!!
