ya very clean find, 4 lug doesn't really have too many wheels to choose from so set ups tend to be copied over and over and over again with a 5 lug theres soooo many more choices. just my opinion

ORIGINAL: chath_brick

i didnt have to do any of that...i had to replace my oil pan gasket also, and all i had to do was brace the motor up, take the k-member off, change out the gasket, and put it back together. i didnt have to mess with the pump or tube or distributor or anything.
so your gonna try to sit here and tell this guy that its easier to drop the k member.... the entire front subframe... as opposed to taking out the 2 bolts that hold the oil pump on... cmon, lets be realistic here people

didnt you just say that you have to unbolt the motor mounts and raise the motor before you do that?

very clean car. are the ppl positive about the mileage? my carfax showed that mine was accurate based on past reportings. but the guy at the MVA was questioning me like he didnt believe my car had 85k original miles. but definitely a nice find. how much you get it for?

The mileage was confirmed by carfax, it actually reads about 36k but the original owner never put a new speedo cable in to compensate for the 4:10s so it's probably more like 33500 or 34500miles. Not only that, but the interior was all original and in better than mint condition, like it had never been riden in, even the stereo was still the original tape deck/equalizer unit (which I had to change promptly. Seems it just sat most of the time which is fine by me. I picked it up for 7800 and judging by what a clean slate it is to work with I felt it was worth it.

I will post some interior pictures I took tonight or tomm. Thanks again for the feedback.
