It took 6 months of searching, but I finally found another 6g to replace Abby....

She's a 96 GT 25th anniversary No. 0455. 128,xxx miles, Autofail, tan top.

There are a host of issues that need to be fixed, as with any new used car, but this is what I found so far:

Needs:
Driver's side axle
Driver's side wheel bearing
Poly bushings all around
Struts and springs
Fuel filler neck and gaskets
Wheels and Tires
Quarter Windows need adjusted
Door Cards
Deck lid leaks on the driver's side

There is some rust that needs to be addressed, but luckily it is still at the point where it can be fixed without too much trouble.

Once I get the steering/suspension fixed, I'll drive her like that for a bit to confirm that we're ok for daily duty, then we'll begin planning modifications.

I'll try and take more pictures as I get the opportunity. I'm just happy to be back in one. :)

Sweet! Would look the bomb with a 205 front end.


I'm going to wear only this for my first ride...

lmfao!

Just be sure to buy one for StacyImeanme as well!

I don't know if I want to go with a 205 front end..... I'm thinking I may want to do something else. I haven't quite figured of what yet, but until I do, I'll just rock her as is.

Dude, someone parked a Subaru in your driveway.

You should shoot them. Oh, I mean beat them with a pointy stick, since you are in Chicago and can't own guns.

Chris can't handle the man option. If it were Stacy's car it would be a stick. Everyone knows who wears the pants in that household.

Nice pick up Chris. It looks great. I'm looking forward to seeing how this one comes along and hopefully the dickhead Bimmer drivers watch where their going.

John, I'm afraid to ask how you found a 6G thong...

Thanks guys! I have to say, I'm having a gay ole time in it ;)

And for the record Murgypoo, she lets me wear the pants sometimes. :P

Thanks Cory! We're actually going to be up at gingerman next weekend for an event called gridlife if you feel like swinging out. I'd love to see the car!

He missed the rocker, but there was damage to the rear floorpan directly in front of the rear seats which I can't fix.

But thanks to Richee3, I picked up another one with damage that I can fix.

After sitting on this car for two weeks, I finally made some progress today...

Hopefully, I can get it stripped all the way down tomorrow and start marking the spot welds for cutting out the core support.
