This car was bought from a friend
for $500 with a host of mechanical problems and some fender
rot that was then professionally repaired. I put an airflow
front bumper on and a whaletail that I had lying around. The
car never ran spectacularly but treated me well for over a year
as a daily driver. Unfortunatley whilst driving home from my
grandmother's house on Christmas eve I was side-swiped by an
SUV during a snow storm. How bloody typical.
I never got a chance to really delve
into this car mechanically so it never became anything spectacular.
It was always a nice looking but slightly mechanically beat
89 SPG. After the accident I stripped the gearbox out and put
it in my girlfriend's car. In terms of looks versus performance
this car was the most 'rice' car i've ever owned. It looked
great; it was a real dog... I think my $200 winter beater drives
