Epic miles on those badboys, seem to have a huge following in the US, but dont think ive ever seen one in the UK. Probably the winter salts destroyed them all.

That's an awesome deal! Plenty of spare parts, at least. Any pics?

Wow, those have nice clean bodies; you definitely don't live in an area that sees salt. I don't remember the last time I saw one of those on the road here.

Yea im working on them both trying to see which will be my DD first lol the blue one is winning so far. They are both honestly in good shape in different ways. White one has slightly more rust but is more stock and complete. Blue one has a AEM intake and short throw shifter and is missing a few little dumb things here and there.

Blue one runs pretty good now not as smooth as it should probably something simple but it runs good just need to fix one more exhaust leak and weld a muffler on, bleed brakes and get a battery and it should be good.

White one when drawing vacuum on the egr it wouldnt stall it or anything so i had to take intake manifold off and am about to clean all the ports its really clogged, not sure if that will solve my low power problem or not but we will see. After that i guess i gota drop clutch, guy just put a new clutch in it but the thing makes a rolling grinding noise that gos away when you push pedal in so not sure if he messed something up or maybe it has a bad pilot or release bearing, maybe even output shaft problem not sure.
