The black 88 in pennington NJ? You stole it from my brother...just kidding. Its a nice car that needs some work if you have the moeny. My brother couldnt pay 7000 then another 3000 or so for all the owrk it needed. Just wondering if you checked the rust under teh front passenger side wheel well. Its pretty bad. Just letting you know in case you didnt see it. If you have any other questions about the car let me know. I'll tell you if I saw anyhting you missed.

I'm sure you know that exhaust is not stock(even though the owner says it is) and needs to go ASAP. The car ia actually losing power with that hand fabricated for 20 bucks exhaust system. It also seemed the diff is leaking.

Good luck with the car. Its a great project car. If i had some more money. I would've tried to outbid you :)
Take care,
Adam

yea I seen the rust in the floorpan, but hey my last one was the same way. I thought it was because my sunroof leaked and ended up all over the damn floor but he said that his sunroof didn't leak didn't. I too noticed the way the exhaust seemed to be restrictive, and it was definitely not the original cat, I told the kid that. but seriously I checked her out pretty damn good and I think I know what to check so we will see how she works out. I couldn't tell if the subframe at the motormounts was cracked but that can fixed. anything else you know of that needs to be taken care of mechanically besides what seems to the rear main?
sorry about your brother.......
