This is my latest $500 shitbox from hell: A(nother) '94 Protegé DX. I had another one a couple of years ago and its the only car out of 30+ that I honestly regretted selling. The first one got great fuel economy, was presentable and was really, really reliable.

That brings us to this one- it'll be better than the first and hopefully will serve my girlfriend and I well for years to come. It needs a steering rack (fail seals and boots), tires (Miata wheels and tires will do the trick), some front suspension work and A LOT of cleaning.

How's this thing coming? I will soon be in the market for a new DD, and I am thinking of going for an economical, fuel efficient, yet fun, car. I am just wondering how you like the little single cam motor or if I should just look for the LX model. Oh, and I'm wondering how the interior cleaning went. :-)
