Josue: "Found this car in someones backyard 2+ hours away, from the original owner, didnt make it back home till December of 2012. I bought it with a blown auto trans which I swapped out to a corrado ccm close gear 5sp trans. The most incredible part is I bought the car with 35k originalmiles poor car sat for 10+ years, went through all the harnesses and replaced everything from wearable parts to updated timing chain guides to ball joints. Paint is original to the car with retouched bumpers. Built this car as a daily driver something I can enjoy every time I turn the key. Its been truly the best old car I've owned. Car came with original build sheets and window stickers which I find intriguing. If I had to do it again I wouldn't change a thing, alot of hard dedication through winter months to get this car to become what I wanted! The wheels I found from the original owner as well, he kept them stored for years its just like they were meant to be together."
