Hello from Cleveland
« on: 02:52:28 PM / 02-Dec-11 »
Hi.  I'm Jack.  I picked up a 1984 hatch with the CA20E about a month ago.  It's definitely not perfect, but it's about 90% rust-free, it was was dirt cheap, and until a recent breakdown, ran perfect.  That being said, it's strictly a winter car: the interior looks like the scene of a knife fight, it has two big-ass dents, it burns a quart of oil every 1000 miles, and if I wanted to look good or go fast, I'd drive my G35.  My goals are to just drive it and enjoy the handling, reliability, and gas mileage until it rusts into oblivion in 5-6 years.  Plus, my girlfriend likes it because it talks to her.  :)

Anyways, I'll post pics as soon as I can.  I like the forum so far, everyone seems pretty cool.

Obviously, you have yet to meet Colonel Gustard.

Welcome to the thing.
Nah, quoted for future use because not only is it lame and old, but it's a direct link to Schizo posting up homoerotic menswear fanfiction.

Here's a pic.  I'll take more once it moves under its own power.  Don't get too excited, the other side has a dent the size of a midget.

Well, I work for the city, so that's what paid for it.  :)

If some Tea Party nutjob whines about it, I just tell them I'm on welfare to piss them off more.
