Congrats!

FYI, I learned the hard way that the forum treats .jpeg and .jpg images as if they are different. If youíre outputting files as .jpeg, the size limit is absurdly small. Literally just change the extension to .jpg and you may have better luck.

I'm in Idaho. The car was listed on Marketplace for the past 3 months. listing photos were really bad, it even took me a while to realize it was manual. Description said cooling system parts were replaced and car was still overheating. Also listed that it had 260k when it only has 215k.

My coworker and I talked about how those cheap Motorad thermostats can fail closed, and if it had a cheap one that could be the culprit. Sure enough, Motorad thermostat. Car ran fine for a short test drive after three months of sitting. Radiator was new, fan blade, expansion tank, etc. Owner also told me the pan gasket was recently done too. Valve cover gasket was clean, A/C compressor was also very clean and a Denso unit. All the doors worked, all the windows worked, no dead pixels on the cluster or radio. Clutch still feels a little funny. I'll be replacing the thermostat and some other bits before I take it out for an extended drive.

Finally got pictures resized correctly too! Enjoy

Use Tapatalk and it will automatically resize the pictures.

Are those E70 wheels? They look really good on it.

Looks like a nice addition to an already nice collection. Are they all 3 pedals?

The sedan is, the wagon isnít. A month ago the sedan was down for a while when I replaced the radiator. After I got it back on the road I realized how much I missed having a manual car. The wagon may get swapped at some point in the future. Itís a bit of a basket case of a car, but it looks pretty, and it gets way more attention than the sedan!
