engine good, transmission (5spd) good, new clutch and
center bearing. New brakes and a/c. Running like a champ
and burns about 3/4 qt. per 3,000 and then i change oil.
new timing belt and water pump. tracks fairly good at 80-90
and shocks are good. Gets 26 mpg with bms chip. Is it
possible to get another 100,000 miles out of engine???
---I drive it 15-200 miles a day 5 days a week.

bormann6 going strong @230k, loves my daughter.bought car with 150k, aiming for 300k.purely routine maint.looking at rear susp bushings in near future,but once again,thats routine for the miles. im sorta like the maytag repairman,waiting for stuff to break cause the car is generally fun to shadetree. :)
