I picked up this coupe on sunday,,, after about 5 miles of driving it stopped shifting... off to the tranny shop it went for some kind of adjustment.... i still dont know what they did but it shifts like a pro now, nice and smooth :thumbsup: I put it on the lift at work today and did an oil, filter and coolant change. Its running a bit rough, this weekend it'll get new plugs wires and cap......... then comes brakes, exhaust... ect.. but we'll get there. I've put a 47 miles on it so far without incident since getting it back from the tranny shop... that's about 45 miles further then my last attempt at a HT1400 car drove :thepan:

Here are a few new picts I took tonight, they didn't come out too good in my garage in the dark.

Congrats!

I have been looking at these coupes. I would love to buy one and then put the updated '90-92 front end and taillights.. along with the 5.7 liter.

I charged the AC today at work... it took a charge and blew ICE cold all afternoon.

Anthony and I went to the auto parts store and $207 dollars later i have front pads,rotors,plugs,wires,cap, rear drums,shoes,hardware kit, and a fuel filter.

Tomorrow a friend/ co-worker of Anthony's says he’ll be putting all this stuff on for me, hopefully it'll run a bit better... so things are coming along. Next will be new exhaust.

Nice! It should run good after those items unless the carb needs to be rebuilt or replaced. Goodluck!!

Beautiful!

Are those chrome eyelids on the headlights? I like!

What kind of wire caps are those?

Just a few more picts from today...







Figures that on the way home from taking these last three picts she had to remind me of how old she really is and throw a alternator belt :bigroll: but a quick trip to the auto store, a $14 belt and 10 minuets of wrenching fixed that right up... she's ready for her plates and insurance tomorrow :bouncy:
