History
The bad, a lot more bad then good sadly. The last owner was very hateful toward this IS. I'm told he got carried away with the fiberglass and tried to glass the trunk closed permanently. Has been totaled three times, passed the re-inspection three times as well. Pretty sure it was side-swiped, hence the extremely excessive amounts of filler on the passenger front and rear doors; will be replacing those in January. The front and rear bumpers were barely on the car, held on by sheer luck I'm guessing since they fell off the car when I did the old tire kick prior to buying it. Missing the rear bench butt cushion, I'm told it's best that it's not in the car anymore. The car was lowered so much that the frame rails were touching the ground, it literally would not roll without 1/4 throttle. This has been readjusted to a reasonable 2" drop. The front fenders were cut and bent instead of rolled/pulled. The headlights were taken apart and poorly re-"glued" back together, I still don't know why tho... and tail pipe muffler was broken off as well. All 4 tires were a different size/make/model and bald. The rims were repainted six times with plastidip. The windshield has a pretty good crack too. Its had a sad, sad life. But there is a bright side!!!! It will be better than new, when I'm done with it.
