    Background:
    After breaking down she made her journey from Oregon to California where she sat for a few years in a friends front yard. I had seen her on many occasions but never thought about making her mine. I mentioned to my friend why don’t I buy it and fix it and he through a number at me and I said I’ll take it. $600 and she was mine the next day. I started by tearing the head of where I discovered bent valves. I gave her new valves and upgraded her lifters to 3g lifters which she loved tremendously. Her turbo was on its last leg and quite litterly falling apart so I talked to a friend and picked up a 14b to fit very nicely. She has also been given many replacements for many things like all new motor mounts and other various lines and hoses. She has no heater or air conditioning and summer was pretty hot and I can imagine winter her and I will be pretty cold as well. I am in love and it is inspiring to see many DSM’s that have been restored but it is also exhausting at the same time.
