SADLY I PUT THE BATTERY IN WRONG WICH CAUSED A SHORT
Great - sounds like he fried the electrical by getting his + and - backwards...
I swapped to all lower case and tried to break the ramble up a bit
when i purchased it back in 2004 previous owner had just spent thousands on it with a new crate 2.8 motor, upgraded camaro / caddy brake conversion that made it stop on a dime, new tires and wheels, new polyurethane suspension, new heavy duty outdoor leatherette seats, lombro style side scoops, black dash to match the other black interior, non gt nose to mimic ferraris / lambros more etc etc.
drove it to near san fransisco a coulple times and a few times to lancaster ca. it was a blast. my son learned to drive a stick in this so there went the first clutch and is getting ready for a second ?has an anti sway bar on the back that helped it run like it was on rails but an under engineered link pin on it has popped.
used to stop on a dime with the upgraded brakes and still probably stops better than the way under engineered stock brakes but after that many years and miles not as good as they used to be but believe brake pads still have lotsa meat on them.
had a brand new ferrari silver paint job on it when i bought it so i waited until it accumulated some imperfections before having it repainted the original blue color but goomba shop schlepped one of the fenders and didnt respay the original blue under trunk lid above rear lights rear of trunk. custom air scoop on the hood is starting to get some glass delamination around the vents. some banana brain popped the drivers side window so instead of replacing just the window, i replaced the whole door unfortunately the only readily available door was a silver door that is still silver.
i just had new shift cables installed and in process of finally fixing the drivers side motor so the light works properly. sadly i put the battery in wrong wich caused a short and now runs but is sluggish. so basically it was an amazingly head turning economic made in usa two seater fierrari / lambro wanna be sports machine that now needs some tlc but still has many good attributes if someone wanted to re freshen it to its former glory.
listed mileage is a max approximation of its mileage because goombas who replaced the original gray dash with a black one didnt bother to try to set the mileage to old dash mileage which if i remember correctly was about 120k according to car fox. i put aproximately another 35k to about 50k max on it. so i figure 187k is probably on the outside of the actual mileage on the frame.
im including a complete good running blue 87 gt auto parts car that was booped passenger side top that popped the passenger side headlight, passenger top of fender and hood. those three parts have been replaced and painted same blue. front bumper has a little bit of scratches and a tiny spot were license plate frame popped through. i prefer non gt noses so if i were to keep it i rather pop a non gt nose on it ( looking for a blue non gt nose for it ).
i currently have clear title to it but because of the front boop insurance salvaged it so its title is now has a "salvaged" history on california tittle. current california reg till july of 2017. the automatic has brand new brake pads on all four wheels, had headlight light beams adjusted to pass break and light inspection and just passed california strict smog certification certifying it pollutes but not as much as it could.
