California Sun plays hell on a car's interior. No rust though!
We ripped out the seats, the carpet and commenced with the scrubbing! This car was full of all sorts of archaeology and artifacts including melted pennies, million year old chips, and even an old cough drop.
After we changed the plugs, battery, fuel filters, master cylinder and EVERY brake line, pad, shoe, fastener in the brake system we were ready to drive! Except for tires...
We then found out that NOBODY SELLS 12" TIRES anymore.....the last car to use them in the USA was the 1993 Geo (Suzuki) Metro. Nobody even lists them anymore.
We would have to special order them and they would end up costing $60 each. No way we were going to do this
