This car had a lot going for it, but the interior takes it all away

Flex exhaust??? I did not think anyone used that garbage anymore. I worked at an auto parts store in the late 70's and we only sold that as a cheap fix for desperate people that were looking for short term fixes prior to flips...Seriously, someone would put that junk on?


Never, ever argue with an IDIOT. They will drag you to their level and then beat you with their years of experience

I'm going to use it as a short term connection between Schumacher headers and the exhaust built for long tubes that is on the car now. Just long enough to get the car moved to a different storage spot. I'm also going to try to use it to figure out what I need bent to make the final connection.

But permanent? Not now, not ever, even when I was a broke kid pumping gas in the 70s.

Interior = If it wasn't for POOR taste ... some folks would have no taste at all ....

Exhaust - to use flex pipe shows a total lack of awareness and/or disregard for prospective buyers who will ask WHY?

Those things alone -- makes for --- a lot of question marks in the minds of prospective buyers.

Great job limiting your pool of prospective buyers ....


Like the women I have dated --- Always looking for a better deal ....

That car is a mess everywhere you look. If it sells cheap enough it would be a good daily driver. A quality high end show piece NOT.

Agree! Interior awful, but I believe just a steering wheel swap would make huge difference. And yes, what a shock to see that exhaust!!!


Facts are stubborn things.

They took all the right pieces and ended up with a mess. Check out the remote oil filter: anybody who mounts one like that doesn't know what they're doing. The under-dash wiring makes me wish there was a Halon extinguisher handy...

It lubricates the parts under it with every oil change.

Don't forget about the poor fitting dash components, the awful gauges and radio, and the clutch pedal that looks to be out of a Suburu! Does the shifter even fit without smacking the back side of the console when shifting?
