I need a new daily car. The old Mirage is on borrowed time I feel.

So picking this up in a week or so.

98 - 109k miles. Use to run 11.5's on the old setup but we pulled that out
and put in original engine that had a VS cam. Uses my old transmission that
PRJ built for me almost 10 yrs ago. My buddy Sean sold it to mutual freind Tyler... and 1.5 yrs
later he's selling to me for $1500 ... he needed a car gone to get another one.

Don't really plan on tracking the car.. just make a good daily, but the setup
ran mid 12's long ago...

So i'll have 3 money pits :rollpicard:

Should make for a good daily on good weather. I leave crappy days for the Mirage.
Or for when I need to haul transmissions around in the trunk.

Figure sometime next week when time allows it to take care of the paper work...

Lined up to pick up Friday during lunch time ... making a list of things to do soon.

1) Tint the tail lights (cause buying new is silly right)

2) New IC Pump

3) Summer tires for my 17x7 white 5 spoke wheels off my old car, had repowder coated and never used again.

4) Roof rail it ...

5) Put on my GPO knock offs and see how they look

Picked up today during lunch....



Has a few more things that need addressed

6) Radio is dead

7) Rear speakers / brackets are missing. Car use to be gutted for track use most of its life.

8) Center console door is busted

9) AC Mixer Door is needed

10) New tires and alignment

Ordered ZZP gauge 3 pillar pod to replace current one. It flops around and
a few holes drilled into for things that no longer exist on the car.

New Bosch IC pump.

Will be cleaning it this weekend. Don't think its been washed since 2015.
Interior a bit dirty from dog hair.

Over all car drives and runs great.... so will just tackle the little things one thing at a time.

Both Jdredd and Shaferz cars are great. I do have a soft spot for silvermist coupe's though. As theres a turbo one in my garage I'm still throwing thousands at. She even just got some new TSW 18" wheels and continental extremes. Just waiting in line for trans work at Triple Edge.

Jdredd...I also have 3 wbodies, so I understand. I'm still oddly stuck on mine. Turbo, M90, and a GXP. No new car makes me feel like i would be happy enough to justify the payment.

Have fun with the new Daily!

Silver turd still kicking ... put on my old wheels I had re-coated 3 years back.
Never put em back on as ended up scrapping the car.

Need tires badly too.

Hoping for brakes to go on soon... Fbody fronts and Grand Damn rears.



After this... time to find some rear speakers as they are, uh, missing.
