If you are looking at this site you should know what this car is all
about - as to equipment and the 10th history. Here are the details
for this car not shown on this site:
Sold new in 1980 in Davis, CA (8 miles from my home in Dixon)
First owner was the manager of Vacaville Firestone - so the car was
"Well cared for"
In 1990 it was re-painted and at 100K miles was tossed in the garage
About 1994 the 2nd owner picked it up and tossed it in his garage
In 1999 he was forced to sell it with 124K miles on it and it went into
Aftermarket modifications not shown or stated on this site:
What has been replaced since 1999:
Wheels were polished by the original owner - they are not
"turned" as factory
MSD upgrades and curve kit to the distributor - looks stock
from the outside
Functional Hood scoop is extra - car comes with the factory
scoop which is in safe keeping
Front wheel flares were replaced with older aftermarket,
they are more flexible and have the flex paint that holds up to the road
wear - front original driver's side was hit buy an "ice ball" and the paint
shattered. Stock flares are in safe keeping
No other changes
What does not work:
Brakes, everything but the front hoses
Alt, rad, clutch fan, stat, PS, steering gear box, all hoses,
fuel pump, rear pinion bearing and seal, A/C rebuilt (same unit on the
All receipts provided
Cruise control - have another unit but did not try it because
I don't use cruise
Radio plays but the belt is shot and the digital read out
is off - Year One can repair these
A few of the lamps are out in the dash
Seat track on driver's side is broken
Runs great and passes California smog with flying colors
- I have all the past tests
T-Tops leak - they all do!
Nice cool running car.
This car is driven at least twice a month if it is not
raining. It is not a trailer queen - it a great driver. A well
cared for 25 year old car with 147K miles is better than one with 25K that
sits. Most that look it over think it only has 47K...
One re-paint no known body work and original owner said
there was none; it was re-paint because the silver faded out bad.
The first owner's friend lives down the street and we have chatted a few
times about the car...
The car is driven and does have road chips. No
door dings. Driver's door has a spot were the screw from the window
felt dented the door by the pin stripe. If you lay on the ground
you can see a scratch in the lower part of the driver's door. There
are some very small imperfection in the paint you will find when waxing
or if I point them out. Does fine at the car shows.
Thanks for looking.
