Same engine as yours?

What does it need other than a rebuild?

I don't know what it need's and don't care at that price AE-82 body's are really hard to find!

It is a gt-s so it has the same motor as mine, If it's in good enough shape i'll put it back together with a turbo :D
I hesitate messing with mine because it's in such great shape and all original. This one I can mess with and not loose sleep over it :oldgeek:

Was going to say, just the lights and bumpers should pay for it!

those are great little cars, the GTS version rare and likely to become a collectable. Well worth saving, I would consider it if it was not so far away (and I already did not have a garage full of projects).

These cars actually have a seat similar to the T4wd, with the grab handles, but they come in different colors. I almost bought a set once.

someone should save this car.

By some miracle I did find one near us, but it needs a "tyranny". Pretty sure he means a transmission and is asking way too much for it.

It takes more fossil fuel resources to produce new vehicles than it would take to maintain and fuel any 70's or 80's vehicle for a million miles.

TOO MUCH. wonder what a "clean tittle" is, I had to think, and not sure I would want a tranny to go with it too. the visual on both of those is too much to take. I would have to go around with dirty tittles...

Oh we'd never consider something like that unless it was totally cheap. :lol:

We probably need a "Craigslist Gold!" thread for all the best and worst of CL.
