History
Started as a friend's project, they bought it out of a field in surprisingly good shape, thought there were problems. They tried to drive it for a while, but pretty much every time something went wrong, and they eventually ended up with another car and let this one sit. They no longer had room for it, and not wanting to risk it being scrapped or parted out, they passed it on to me.

Since then, many things have been fixed or replaced.
-Fuel system overhaul (Pretty much everything from the pump forward was replaced)
-Alternator replaced
-Front & rear struts replaced
-Steering rack replaced (Had a major leak, labor for repairing it was more than R&R with a reman.)
-Aftermarket radio replaced, and mangled wiring from previous install fixed
-Speedometer replaced with a working unit, swapped bulbs in dash for LED
-Pads and rotors all around
-Majority of A/C bits removed (They were non-functional, though I've saved them for core charges in the future when I can afford to get that working)
-Painted with Rustoleum
-New windshield (Was a pain to find a glass place that could still get one)
