I replaced the rear wheel bearings (rear drums and shoes), the car started up and ran just fine (after I replaced the battery).
All I need to do know are tires, a SVT suspension kit, and an exhaust system from the header on out the back (replace the flex pipe and back).
This car is not my daily driver and is a weekend car/travel car. It may not be the best looking car, but its paid for.
A lot of work went in to get it going again but at least you were able to do it yourself. It helps having another car handy. Mine's finally paid off now so i plan on keeping it and getting the wife a truck sometime in the future so i can work on it and have a spare car to drive. Next time we have a meet you should come out an shoot the breeze with us.
