Got a 89 V6 auto for nothing. Plans are to make a streetcar/autocross car. I’m friends with the owner of UMI Motorsports and their shop is only 15 min from my house. So lots of help with the autocross part and lots of suspension to buy.

Re: Joined the 3rd gen club.

Not sure. Going to go this weekend and pull up the carpet and check it out. Hoping for the best but not very optimistic. If the floor is shot I will find another one and use this as a parts car. I do already have a disc rear end for it.

Was kinda worried about that, the way she's laying on/near the ground in those photos.

Went and looked at the 85 today. Body is solid all the way around and not one speck of rust on the floors. Has 350 with auto. $1800. The interior is junk but I can get that from my other car.

Only thing I don't like is it's a Berlinetta with the digital dash and funky controls.

Re: Joined the 3rd gen club.

Went and got it started today. It's been sitting for a couple years but put in a new battery and it fired right up.The dash and light pods don't work so I will have to either repair them or find used ones. That could be an issuse as they are hard to find cause it is a Berlinetta with the funky controls and digital dash. I got new seats already from a salvage yard out of a 4th gen. The rest of the interior doesn't look as bad as I first thought. Even the dash pad is in great shape. It will need new carpeting and a major cleaning though.Once I get it home I will get it cleaned up and start the process of going over everything on the car I will start a new thread with all the details as it comes along. Got a long way to go to make it a autocross/ street car, but have a nice rust free car to start with witch is hard to come buy in central PA.
