This was my first car, back in the time frame 94-96. I worked all summer and earned $500 dollars toward the car and my parents coverd the rest. We bought i... Show moret from M.A.K. consignments. The rear wiper didn't work, it had five different size tires on it, if you include the spare. the speedometer never did work quite right. My Pop broke the connecter on the alternater so I would lose headlights and radio, I would then have to pull off the road and put the connector back in. Good times! I learned alot about mechanics and myself. I wouldn't trade anything for those memories. I traded the car for a 1973 Satellite Sebring. The guy gave it to his daughter in Johnston City, Il. I am serving in the Air Force stationed in Japan. I would like to know what happened to that car.
My Car got TPed by some girls from work
Right Side before the accident
Here is an interior shot through the rear hatch
This is a picture of the hatch. The doors froze one night at work so I had to climb through here to drive home. ;-P
Shot of the rear of the car. It didn't work so I took off the wiper arm.
The engine compartment. We replaced the battery, battery cables, and the spark plugs. I had a bad upper radiator hose. So I went to NAPA. They told me that this car didn't exist. So I kindly asked the gentleman to walk outside and see for himself. He just took his hat off and scratched his head. I had to get parts for a Sentra. The drain cock was broken off up inside the radiator. I melted it with an old soldering iron and stuck a screw driver up in the soft plastic. I let it cool and backed it right out.
First view of my 1st accident. The Police officer took one look at it and said that it was a miracle that the car had not rolled over.
2nd shot of the damage
Looks rough huh?
We had so much crap pulled off this car, it was a trying ordeal.
Still have it all apart to bang out, and also, pull the dents out as much as possible. Because we had never seen a car like this one we couldn't just go and get another fender out of the junk yard.
We found that a blocked caliper had made my slide off the road, and subsiquent launch over the couldren, and landing at a 45 degree angle worse.
Closer view of the caliper.
This is what the finished result. I knew after this experience body work was not my calling.
My 1st day of mt senior year.
The dash pad had long since dried up. It kept flaking all over the carpet. So we ripped it out.
I had a 102 F fever. My dad didn't belive me that the car was riding rough. He finally drove it and checked it out and found that the shock towers rusted through.
Here is another view of the "custom" rear end.
The welding shop that my pop took it to simply jacked up the rear end and welded the plates in place. When putting the car back together (which was difficult because I didn't take it apart,) I found a silver bracelet with the name Eunce. That is what I called the car from then on.
Posed picture for Mom.
I needed a sub enclosure, and Brian needed a wood project. I like to call that a win, win situation. Show Less
