Just found this with 25,344 miles 1992

It's just the v6 but I couldnt believe how it had been stored. It was a raffle car that a friend of mine eventually got from the owner and he did new windows seals and such because it had sat in the garage so long.

This is about as clean as they get and it has an interesting background. who enters a raffle for a car just to have it sit around for 18 years? lucky for you someone did. lol I think it looks very nice and unique. good find, now give it some power

Re: Just found this with 25,344 miles 1992

thanks for the comments.

So some of you guys would really swap a v8 in here even though it has original v6 with 25k miles?

what does something like cost?

I also have a daughter that just turned 16,,,argh.


Some folks have tried to convince me to redo the paint to a solid color but I kind of like the pace car look.

Re: Just found this with 25,344 miles 1992

Looks really nice. I like the paint and wheels they are certianly period correct for 92'. Personally I would v8 swap the car but if you like driving it and enjoy it the way it is then no need to change that. However i dont know about letting your 16 year old drive it lol, maybe only when you are in the car too. Great find though, low milage third-gens are very hard to come by (without spending grand national money on them).

Re: Just found this with 25,344 miles 1992

very interesting. I would keep it 100% stock due to history, but thats me. It may never have a lot of value due to the 6 but its history and paint, etc could make it collectible..
Its just me.. mr stock.

Thanks again for all the comments.

I am in no rush since it plenty of fun to drive for me as is. I think the next thing is trunk support arms because they do not work so good on cold days.

Thanks for the comments...Yes, I do have a few hours in the car, but it's a really fun build so I guess all the labor doesn't count!!!
