What a Turd

So first thing we do is take it over to my buddy rons house and work in the brakes. After replaceing a master cylinder which was so rusted on i thought that was gonna be it right there we start pumping up the brakes and bleeding them when pow a brake line up front ruptures. Teriffic so another parts store run and 2 hours latter due to rusty connections thats back on but all the air went to the back now so forget it well mess with it another day. Im looking this thing over all weekend to try and see why it has such a bad miss hopeing its not the expensive coil pack. Started notice coolant leaking only to discover the rad has a pinhole crack on the side of it. Teriffic, and i took off a plug wire only to realize i only needed to remove 1 to see the problem. There is enough carbon on the plug end to stop a lightning strike from going through, and the plugs look like they were on there since cliniton was in office. All in all the only good thing about this thing is that it does have working a/c and despite all the problems it still does run and drive somewhat so it can atleast get me to work.
Heres a photo of it after a much needed bath, and believe me this picture makes it look alot better then it is.

this looks like no rust so good start, but how many miles. it may need about 2500 in repairs just for roadworthy, shocks, struts, brakes, timing chain sprockets (they are plastic sprockets and let go) tires, etc.
ammoina works good for tint gunk. razor blades work too.
