Default Our new to us B13 Winter Beater so the G20 can stay rust free - PICS enclosed!

Only 82k original miles.. very solid engine and trans.. 2nd owner had it for 12 years! (a very nice British lady) Cosmetic it isn't the best but what do you expect for a $1200 winter beater anyway? It only needs a few little fix ups to be even better which we will address shortly!

And here are the pics!

looks like it might be a fun little car to drive, you cant beat the mileage though.

so far the worst mpg was 27 (lots of city stop and go)

..and the best has been 50mph (no joke, all highway driving!)

average has been around 38mpg

not bad at all!

hehe... yeah, light weight tin can is the key along with efficient little 1.6 engine mated with manual tranny!


....people forget how much weight gets added when you have items like power windows, air bags, ABS, power door locks, sun roof, power steering ... and manual trans is lighter than auto-tragic, etc.

yeah, even in phoenix area the b13s are getting harder to find (even harder to find a decent SE-R) but we always are on the lookout when down there cause they are at least 100% rust free down there!!!!

thanks, we did have to put some work/$$ into it though...

Needed all new brakes (front and rear all components), needed new driver door hinge and door handle, and a nice stereo steup with subwoofer so it's more like a $2k beater now

Yea but the car drives soooo much better with new brakes it'll be worth it. Also new tires help a lot also!! (I figure they'd be dry-rotted if the car's been sittin for a while? )
