Spotted this guy on craigslist about 2 hours away, went out last night and it ended up coming home with me.

Not sure what I plan on doing with it, it's got a lot of cancer around the rockers. Runs and drives but the fuel tank rusted so it has a bad gas leak. I'll have to get it in the air and see if it can be patched or if I'll have to try and find a replacement. Not sure if I want to hold onto it and work on fixing it up some or flip it and try to find a good home for it.

I'll grab more pictures after work, this was all I got on the way home before I ran out of light. It's got just over 100K miles, just rolled over.

See if Danny W - "drivesubies" has those rocker panels. There's plenty of parts out there for these cars but finding the cars is the hard part.

Good luck with it.

"Ctsuba" has lots of parts too if you can get him.

Well I saved it from the scrappers but I think it's probably more than I'll end up wanting to tackle, plus other projects that need attention first, would anyone be interested in it?
