I regret having sold this car every day, as pretty as it looked in pictures they did not do this car justice... Also if you had seen it in person the paint had a lot of imperfections But non the less... This when I bought it was a $1000 car as you see it, (I swapped the interior to great) Started up, Ran drove, the car had 250K miles on the body but it had underwent a full frame up restoration, But when I bought it the owner would not let me test drive it as to later found out it was over heating, I called the owner to ask what the issue was and he said it had a bad head gasket and "it was my problem form there" so I towed it home and took a good long look into it and found that the radiator fan would not turn on before overheating, Looked at the fan, turned on the A/C and it popped on... So confused as hell I called DIY-stu and asked him how to test the fan switch, Well after doing so I went down to autozone, bought a $15 fan switch, brought it home, drove it around, whala all fixed and for a good while I had this car and was almost using it as my daily with only having had replaced that switch and a ICM, This was truly one of the most reliable fieros on the road.... May It rest in peace as the owner after me got into an accident with it.

But If I had not sold it I would not have been able to buy the my notchback IMSA

Nice Car PK! I was thinking on trying something like that for the heck of it on my car with Pasti Dip. If I don't like it, I can just peel it off.

I was reading the post, and reading, and thinking to myself... Hmmm he has not mentioned IMSA one single time so far. As I read further and further I was thinking Wooo Hoo he made it through an entire post without mentioning it! Way to Go! ! ! Then I got to the VERY LAST WORD IN THE POST LOL

I've always loved the shade of green that car had on it. I'd love to re-paint my Formula in that green with white lettering for the decals.
