Always passes emissions test.
Strong, trouble free engine – still very fast 1.7-1.8 bar under the right circumstances

The Bad:
Drivers window will not open and close – needs a new regulator – motor works.
Unlocking drivers door doesn’t disarm the car alarm – used to run around to the passenger door to lock/unlock it to stop the alarm but now passenger door lock broken->
Passenger front door lock broken – key just spins the lock cylinder.

The Ugly:
Needs complete rear brake fix. Hand brake cables froze so pads drag on disks ruining both. Also brake lines are swollen and cracked and ready to fail. Quote for total fix of rear brakes by shop: $1,500-$2,000.
Major oil leaks through front and back engine seals. Oil covers top of catalytic converter. No visible smoke but a strong odor comes into the car with the heater on due to the heater air intake coming from the area near that cat.

To quote my local wrench – “this car is finished.” The cost of repair far outweighs the sale value of the car. I have to walk away. Asking $2,000.00 or??? Or best offer.

It is drivable if moving it locally. The brakes are the wild card.
