Fellow '02 cult members:

I now am one of you. I just picked up a beautiful
Fjord Blue 1974 2002tii. It has Navy interior and
is very pretty.

But I have a few issues with it.

Firstly the front seats. The Vinyl is new so
no problem there. But the drivers seat seems to
have the horsehair padding and it must not be very
new as its lacking in much support. The passengers
seat was repacked with foam. It provides more
support and is more comfortable than the drivers
seats but it the padding looks kinda funky -- I
assume because the padding is not conformed to
the shape of the horsehair.

So I need to either get both seats packed with
foam that will look better or horsehair. Or, I
may just need to get recaros -- opinions?

Secondly, I have an idle surge that developed on
the way back to Texas from Colorado. Don't know
if its elevation related or not. One fellow
(not the PO) said that was just the mixture that
needs to be adjusted -- any comments.

I'll leave it at that for now. The car is
going to my mechanic later this week for a
good going over. I have some other issues I'll
post later.

Its nice to be an '02 owner!

Mark Hammons
