[EDIT] - SOLD! (didn't realize this post from 2016 still existed here, lol!)

Guys, it's killing me to do this, but it's time I moved on...

Putting this up to see if anyone's interested in the car as it sits, before I do the partout thing... Car is currently complete, a timing chain tensioner failed and caused bent valves and I think a valve cap broke off and bounced around in the cylinder. Totally stinks, the engine was incredibly clean internally, at least what I've seen in the top end, plus I rebuilt it from the heads up after the timing belt broke at 96K miles. I ran Mobil 1 since I bought it at 53K miles. It still drove great, and it's gonna be a challenge to find a vehicle that comes anywhere close to the pleasure of driving it. I simply don't have time to mess with it anymore, and we were already mini-van shopping before the engine issue....

For the sake of conversation, plus the forum rules, I'll list a price of $800.00 as it sits. Let's talk if you're seriously interested.
