I've had my time with this car, but it's time to move on. It's got a straight body, no rust, clean, intact interior with an uncracked dash, and no major damage. I bought the car in June of '09 with a blown engine (overrev damage), and put in a used 12A with similar miles. I removed emissions equipment and installed a Pacesetter exhaust. Shortly after I installed the second engine, it blew a coolant seal and is burning lots of water. It made good compression and ran smoothly before the coolant seal let go, so it's a great candidate for a soft-seal rebuild. The car is currently wearing some 185/70/13 and 205/60/13 Advan A048s, and has a double-row alternator pulley and stainless-steel clutch line from RE-Speed.

The car is not currently titled, but since it is a classic car (over 25 years old) and was last registered out of state (WA), it's a surprisingly simple process to get a clean title issued by the state. I'd be happy to discuss what I've learned about the titling procedure. I never got around to getting it titled, as one of the requirements was passing an inspection, and a non-running car has a hard time getting to the inspection station.

I'm sad I have to sell this car, but I don't want to sit another driving season out, and it's time to move on. I'd like $1,000 OBO, call/text eight1seven, seven9eight, five1three3 or email jakesieverling at gmail.com for more information. The car is located in College Station, TX.

S, GS or GSL?

Assuming no sunroof by the manual window cranks?

Assuming no LSD?
