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.

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.
