    Deal of the month right here! 1990 with 145k miles, new Monroe/Moogs (less than 6k miles), new tires (less than 6k miles), reinforced motor mounts, clean inside and out. No rust, light, very light, body damage above driver rear wheelwell. Moonroof, very clean black interior, new material cover rear seat (professionally done), front seats are dry though, and are the only sore spot in interior. 6-disc cd changer

    So the good - almost new suspension and tires (all seasons, not performance), clean inside and out, no rust.

    The bad - needs new steering rack (is stiff turning left, but turns right fine!), engine uses oil, compression is ok last I checked, but I think the valve guides are going, as it smokes in the morning upon start up.

    This car does need some TLC, in the form of a new rack and addressing the oil consumption/smoking and it needs an alignment, and needs moonroof switch, needs AC charged. but it starts every time, has fairly fresh rod bearings, new clutch cable (though the clutch is heavy effort, even though it is stock and low miles), zero rust, and has clean interior, reinforced motor mounts, rides great on the black basketweaves and new tires/suspension.

    I will get pics up soon. Price is firm, as the money spent recently on tires and suspension make up near 70% of the asking price.

    I will include a steering rack and heads from my parts bin.

    Also, this SHO has been 117mph in the 1/4, when it was turbocharged. So there!

    That's got me tempted, but I am out of room for cars......so I'm looking for a bike. The living room is an acceptable garage for a bike isn't it?

    Conference my wife is attending. Looking for things to do Saturday and Sunday, maybe hit some museums, put some miles on my road bike (assuming the weather is fair), visit some nice pubs and try a few local brews.
