Back again for the second time. I keep going through problems with my car and end up giving up on her. The story;

2 days before selling the car i pull out of my driveway and it completely dies on me. I tow it back and look over it to find nothing. Call the people coming to buy it and told them the story, they were rather happy it didn't happen to them after they got it. So i tare apart the ignition harness thinking it had to do with the remote start system. 8 months down the road I find one of the ground wires broke off. D'oh! Yeah, I can only laugh about that one now. But it kept me from getting rid of the car.

A few months later I'm driving home and it starts sputtering on me and when I try to give it gas it dies. I roll off the road and grab my tools thinking the screw in the distributor cap that holds the sparker on came out again. (This happened several times before even after lok-tite). Upon opening it up I see the screw in there and almost instantly knew she was done for. Further inspection showed a snapped timing belt and bent valves, the whole works.

Somewhere inbetween there though I managed to pick up a set of H&R Race's for $75 locally. 4,000 miles on them. Have to love craigslist. But so far on this car I have cheaped out on everything. Springs but no struts, Intake instead of ball joints and seals. Ignoring the excess smoke which I knew was from rings, ignoring the engine tick.

So, in late October I come back from a 6 month summer job with a fat wad of cash, and I'm going to do an h22 and 5 speed swap all at once while replacing ball joints, putting in new struts and brake lines etc. Oh and fresh paint which I'm stoked about. All in all I've just decided I love this car way too much and its about time I treat her right.

On another note though, I do believe I left in the middle of a bad exchange and owe someone money. No this isn't a joke, I really want to set this straight. I don't remember the guys screen name exactly but if you reccognize me, please let me know. I will remember you.

Sorry for the extremely long post, I've missed you guys.

Check on my signature and garage for more pictures and info. Its all updated.
