farewall to the 91 200q20v avant

The car's been sitting for the better part of a month, odds are there is
some light rust buildup on the rotors.  Do some hard braking and it
should clear up.  That frozen strut bearing could also be causing some

My suggestion:
- leave the damn brakes alone unless you're going to BIRA or similar big
brakes, but you're wasting the money unless you're going to track the
car.  Nothing beats the UFOs at the price and rotors are probably below
$200/side at this point.  Yes, the 87 brakes would be a ridiculous
- replace the thermostat (which I will send you, forgot that)
- replace the suspension with something good and do those strut bearings

I can't think of anything off an 87 that I would want to put on a 91,
except maybe the strut inserts.
