    1/4/16 edit. Priced at 2k!

    So the time has come.....87 GT-S
    Pains me to do this but I need the space and the money. Also may be moving out of state for work...so here goes. do I really need to list ALLL the parts??? in short this car has about every part you can buy on it. i'm roughly 10-12k into this car. im sure I could produce receipts for a good portion of that. odometer shows iirc 23x,xxx miles. this was a junkyard bit... iirc chassis had 220k???

    the good.
    -car runs, drives, stops.
    -rebuilt/balanced/bored motor. probably has 1500 miles on it from the last 3ish years. (3s-ge of course)
    ---mls gasket
    ---arp studs
    ---high volume oil pump
    ---new pistons (nothing special)
    ---all new seals.
    ---TODA adjustable cam gears.(set at 0, never got around to dyno tune these)
    ---clear upper timing cover.
    ----ect, ect, ect
    -resurfaced/painted wheels 15x7 gen 5? gt-s? in gold
    -new tires...call it 300 miles. hankook ventus r-s3 (225-45-15)
    -new paint (semi black) perfectly straight body.
    -new carpet in pass compartment.
    -koni yellows
    -white line front/rear sways
    -poly motor mounts
    -alum cross member mounts
    -semi-tucked wiring in bay.
    -2.5in exhaust
    -gen2? exhaust manifold
    -jdm ecu
    -wideband O2 with digital read out.
    -hella yellow fogs
    -kaminari body kit with no rear skirt. installed and painted.
    -iirc, dyno showed 127hp at the front wheels. I have the sheet in with a pile of recipts for the car.
    -all poly bushes.
    -eibach lowering springs
    ****please note. this list is not full. I can go into further detail if there is real interest****

    -the bad...
    -window seals were pulled for paint. this shouldn't have been done. they are in place, but asthetically imperfect. and I think the rear has a small leak.
    -the interior is rough. swapped with black leather door inserts (imperfect.)
    -rear seat is gone
    -homemade upper rear strut brace. not beautiful but is functional
    -does make some clunking on rough roads. I think this is because the spring seats (rubbers) in the struts were pretty worn, but I couldn't find replacements.
    -has occasional cold start issue. (common)
    -2nd gear grinds just a bit.
    ***again can go into more detail with interest***

    -to sum up...I built the car to auto-x. never got around to it... now she's just taking up space, and I could use the cash. the car handles excellent and goes like stink. most excess weight has been removed. its a very fun car to rip around in and would make a great starter auto-x car. the car isn't perfect, but it is almost 30 years old. it could be used to daily, but seattle roads suck and after about a week your back will be broken.

    -$3k again i'm between 10-12k into this car.
    NO I WILL NOT PART ANYTHING. EVER. DONT ASK. I will enter it in a lemons race before I part it.
    -I also have a small collection of parts that will go with it.
    -car will make it across country no problem. or buyer would pay to ship.
    -I haven't listed this anywhere else and probably wont for a while, as I hope someone from the site would take her.
