(copied from project Corky)

So far this is what I've found.

1994 1.8 had a towing 'mishap'. The passenger side frame rail has a 8" tear near the front. Likely a hook up error using a winch. Drivers side front took a minor deer hit. Easy to fix, and I found the necessary parts, except for the fender, the day I bought it.
Person selling it did some ugly work on the car. Crap header, EGR cut and resealed, P/S belt removed for no reason..... simple stuff that helped me get the price down.

Breakdown:
$1,350 for the car
$300 for red headlights, motors, hood, and front bumper

Not bad so far for what I got.

Picked up a new drivetrain for project Corky and scored both front fenders with the deal.

$700 for the fenders, tail lights, and 1.8 swap with transmission.

Getting to work on this asap.

Well, I've decided to keep this thing and the 90' is on it's way to a new home soon. The color will likely change in honor of PB and G5.

Spent an hour under the car degreasing and removing 20 years of dirt, oil, and other phun stuff. It's really a super clean car considering it has 120k on it. I'm going to build the backup 1.8 on the side this winter and get ready for turbo fun. Ultimos are coming off immediately, and will be up for sale since I have no use for them.

Also recently picked up a piece of hardtop OEM rear glass ($100) in awesome condition from another member, and a minty Sonic Motorsports S2 with a G-Force camlock (proseries) harness for $220. So, the Ultimos will be replaced with these....



.... and we'll go from there.

Car is ready to be dipped. Fixed for cheap. Sourced a super cheap Racing Beat intake for it and decided to put the Yellow Koni G/C setup on the silver car aka project Corky instead.
