    Background:
    Bought the car from a friend of mine for $550. Car had a blown head gasket, and blown heater core hose and was treated like sh**. the guy wanted to cut up the body and LSX swap it but i bought it before he did and he constantly called it junk.the car came with a full rebuild kit for the 420A that just didn't come with rods. So far iv'e changed the head gasket along with the exhaust gasket and the heater hose. basic fluid flushes and filter changes. Pulled the motor and re timed it because it was misfiring. put the motor back in and runs better than it ever has except for the hanging RPMS and the broken temp sensor.... constantly reads that the temp is all the way up... Bought a 2 level wing off of my friends stealth he blew up and bolted that on aswell. Also put in 2 toggle switches, One for the fuel pump and other for the radiator fans. Was a Florida car and the motor is originally out of a Talon. (Owner before the one i got it from swapped it). Odometer reads 96k interior has cracks and the light in my shop fell and cracked my wind shield. car has a terrible tint job and one rust hole in the hatch. Hoods Bent. but over all is an extremely clean car. My plans are to return the car to its former glory and show up everyone that doubts the car its self. Going to make it into a mean street car that people can talk S#!t about but wont race because they know they'll lose.
