Got a few things over the winter for my project. Here's a picture of the short shifter I picked up. I'm trying to come up design for a custom shift knob for the top of it.



I also got tinted quarter windows and 16" Cavalier rims. Will post more pictures soon.

Got my new tinted quarter windows on today. They fit not bad. My plan is to tint the side windows as well.

The frame is not too bad its a little weak in the frame rails by the engine, could be welded. Not real rusty, the previous owner had a turbo 3.8L which was a little much for it I think.

Sounds familiar.   Smiley

We parked our 85 last fall after a timing chain/gears failure, and haven't touched her since.  On the other hand a basement renovation project may finally be finished this fall.    Cheesy

Boy life must be rough when you do not wear pants, cars always come before home renovations because in the end the female always gets the house and the only thing the guy has left is his car. Dan

Pulled the cover off last weekend. Took the rear wheels off, struts out, wheel liner out. Looks like sitting in my garage for 7 years has not been kind too the old girl. Upper frame rails have rusted a bit. I will probably pull the rear clip off after I drop the cradle to get a better look.

I hear what you are saying.  I don't even want to think about all the problems I might have after the long sit.  It's mostly engine issues I'm worried about.  Gaskets and water pump and such.
