Well I'm back been a rough summer after I wrecked #1284/2000 back in May. Came to find out the right rear hub locked up in a left hand corner in the rain. Bad day. Well a few weeks back I saw #715 listed for sale and went out and bought her. The owner was a great guy and wow did he take care of it. Big Weave can testify to that. Car was bought bone stock, even had the factory tape player w/ equalizer in it. Nothing was ever taken apart and if it was it was for repairs by certified techs only. She had a broken timing belt and I found I could rock the intake cam back and forth about 40 degrees, I had a built motor laying around from #1284 so.......

Now #715 is bone stock, only with a built engine. I'll have pictures soon. It is beautiful and I've decided to keep as many original parts I can, yet modernize a bit. I plan on keeping her as long as I can and slowly building it.

I finally got it running and drivable and all I can say is wow. Everything is tight and clean. It seriously feels like it went through a time warp and is straight out of 1992. I'm the third owner and the previous owner had it for the last 100,000 miles. Here is the tech specs so far:
