here's my $56 joy ride. needs the usual..brakes, tires, suspension, tune up. engine recently rebuilt, has about 70,000 miles. although it seems they didn't torque the valve cover gasket or oil pan bolts...LEAKY. needs a water pump. gonna tear out the a/c components, for a tiny bit more power. needs a little body work, oh yeah, and a HOOD.

I had an 87 NX SE just like that, same color and all...but I hafta admit, I like the CA18DE in my black 88 NX SE better...What's even funnier is that I call my 88 my go kart lol. :thumbup:

$56 is cheaper than an acual go cart! i would stip that thing down/cut it up and make it into a super dupe light weight toy. like SCC did to that b15. id put spare's on all 4 corners and just slide around on them (i have always wanted to do that for some reason lol)

if i found a car for $56 i would do so much stupid crap that i have alwayd wanted to do its not even funny. it would be striped and have no roof in 2 days flat lol. along with removed fenders replace by sheet metal rivoted to the inside (to make it "open wheeld lol") cut put trunk floor with rivoted sheet metal, no rear seat............lets put it this way, any none load bareing heavy gauge body pannels would be replaced with thin sheet metal.

i demand you have a very good time with that :thumbup:

although your ideas are "neat", and $56 is dirt cheap, that just means that the money I saved on the auction can go towards things like, suspension, exhaust, and the like. what it really came down to is the guy selling had no idea what he had, and did not advertise it correctly. he said it was ALL rusted out and the engine ran really bad. HA! i changed the air filter and it was llike dumping out a vaccum cleaner. DIRTY! did a tune-up...yup, she purs like a kitten.

I still need to get more pics up soon

here they are, though only two turned out

this is the start of a water pump job. That timing cover is a B-!

I noticed a lot of talk about seats...anyone want these?

cool, there is this "oxy clean" knock off made by a company that makes car care stuff that will fix those water stained seats right up. used it on my door panel (gross arm dirt on the arm rest) and they look 100% new now.
