Hello all! First off, you'll have to excuse the user name, the Wonder Wedge is no longer with us... (a moment of silence, please.)

Moving on, I loved my first EA82-chassis, I had to get another! For a while, I've been stalking craigslist, Autotempest, and eBay for something squeaky clean. Drivetrain didn't really matter since it'll be getting something much, much better :brow:

Anyway, what I found was an ultra-clean 91 Loyale, 2WD, 5 Speed, SPFI w/ 115K miles. The only problem it had was a bypassing oil pump gasket (low oil pressure). Fixed that, plus the 120K mile service (T belts idlers and tensioners, fluids, WP, thermostat, belts and hoses, ect). The only rust is the rockers at the rear well are starting to balloon (only at the tips). Otherwise, the car is RUST FREE. Even the original converters have CLEAN HEATSHIELDS. EVERYTHING was Ziebarted from the get go, and EVERYTHING is coated underneath.. lol I couldn't have found a cleaner one from the museum!

All in, it owes me less than $1K. Not too shabby.. :D

Now for the pics!

Nice score. It looks like the twin to my first subie! Mine was eventually swapped to 4x4. I loved it

What kind of amazing gas mileage does that thing get? I had one just like it but an '88 and I could regularly get 37/38mpg hwy. Got 41 once with a strong tail wind, never saw below 30 in city driving amazingly.
