History
Bought it a week after I turned 16 for $750. She is the car I learned to wrench on and hot rod in. Although a stock 115HP can only power so much trouble. Drove it in HS and in college she ate a crank bearing and has sat parked up to summer 2011.

Now it is time to replace the craiglist engine in it and I have choosen to step up to a carb'd LS engine.
