my brother gave me this car after he bought it for $700 to tool around in for 6 months. What a gift...It wasnt much on the outside - the vinyl top was cracked and faded and it had a few rust issues here and there. I never minded Like the school bus blinkers? The previous owner got into a fender bender and knocked up the bumper, broke the blinkers and broke the drivers seat back.I had to replace the right blinker frequently... I seemed to have trouble avoiding trashcans back then This is the day I gave it a spray can paint job. It looked ok for about a month! It had 14 inch wheels... strange indeed. Ever tried to find a 235 75 14? The only full interior shot I have and this ugly guy is in it. See his car later.The "permanent recline" of the drivers seat back was fixed with a 2x4 until I found two blue seats from a cougar XR7. A little cutting and I went from one to two ashtrays in the back! I mutilated the dash a bit with my youngster antics. You can see the tweeters on it to cover the original holes from the switches. The clear panel is the face from the clock that didnt work... the mess around the switches is super glue (becuase the panel was too thick to screw them in place). I figured out the hard way that these cheap ugly switches are rated for very low amps, much less than for what I had them hooked up to. Hey, I was young, and at this point I didnt know how to do anything to the car but silly things like this.note in the pic below the wire duct taped down along the side. I was such a skilled electrician back then... I think at this point i was still twisting wire together and had things hooked up to a house doorbell switch.I think you will be equally impressed with my first car audio work on the next page... I started out with the little things, plugs, wires, cap & rotor and a good carb cleaning - Its amazing what the little things can do.Over the years (once I learned some things, took auto shop, worked in one for a while) I gave it a new fuel pump, radiator, starter, alternator, water pump, brakes all the way, belts and hoses, and of course proper maintinanceI learned the hard way that auto zone, advance auto parts, and pep boys are for oil, cleaners, and name brand parts ONLY! This car went through 2 or 3 alternators and starters before I started working on it, and they all came from these places. The starters were so F'ed up that eventually the flex plate (flywheel) had to be replace when the toothed ring fell off of it. But hey, I got to degunk the transmission, drain the convertor, and put in a new modulator valve while it was out - it was fresh, clean, and shifting smoother than ever!
