First and formost: I want to say a huge thank you to benebob for hooking me up with a hopefully great car. I got a call for him today about a guy who stopped at our tent at Carlisle and offered a car up forsale. I have learned quickly about jumping quickly because these things get snapped up really quickly..
It is an 87 turbo AWD 5 speed xt. It is grey and silver and has about 103k on it. It is all there and has a working air suspension and *big grin* digital dash...and a huge factory sunroof too. I got it for $250 plus transfer fees. It is nearly rust free except for a spot on the lower rocker panel (not bad though) and a small spot in the frame (not a big deal but I need to do something ASAP so it doesn't get worse)
Of course any of you are going..."hey that is too damn cheap...where is the catch here" well it has a trashed EA-82T in it. The owner said he was changing the oil in it and he got more antifreee out of the oil pan than oil was in there. So I have a door stop for an engine but the rest is pretty good.
Pics to follow as soon as they become available (was dark till I got home with it on the rollback)
So for now I am lets just hope it doesn't do this to me
Also to top it off....I had michelle steer it while I winched it on the truck....she's hooked already!
Hopefully we can count this as another one saved from a certain death.

With all the cool new additions to the Northeastern collections it sure is making it look like the old Subes are making a comback!

As long as you have motor problems...
Why not put the real motor back and make it "stock" again?
Just a thought?
