History
I got the car with 138,000 miles on it. It had been in a flood and the owner was trying to hide that from me. Anyway, it ran good but had a terrible shimmy in the rear. Replaced rear struts and end links; didn't do a thing. It ended up being an alignment issue so got that fixed. The trans would bang while shifting so I had a local guy do the solenoids. Then I cracked a head due to what I assume was poor maintenance on previous owners part. Put reman heads on and the whole works. That was my first time doing any major engine work and it went very well. Started right up and still runs strong. I spun out on I-75 a couple months later going 70 but thankfully only bent a trailing arm and loosened a hub bearing. I've done a lot of work replacing mostly parts that needed replacing so I have a good base to mod from.
