Default what was I thinking?

On a whim Saturday, I pulled the trigger on a huge pile o turd. I have been wanting to go rally racing for a while but none of my cars are suited for it. Either to high, to low, to nice or rare. So here we are. Cars not as bad as it looks, mechanically speaking its a good car. physically it's a disaster! In my mind that makes it perfect for dirt rally. Plan is to clean it up a little, throw a quick rattle can paint job on it, 2" lift, some all terrain tires, fix the power steering, and add sub frame connectors. Then bomb the crap out of it at the local rally track. other than that, I figure the stock 215hp will be fine for my skill level. This is my first SN95, and It's probably the ugliest car I've ever owned, but I think I'm in love.
enjoy the horror...





y'all got any spare parts laying around for this stock as hell shitbox?

Awesome! Sounds like a fun idea. Could only have been better if it was a 94-95 pushrod engine. Still, that's gonna be fun.

lol, ya they've been swapped. I wouldn't have gone for it if it was a 2 valve. I don't think I'll be able to hurt this motor as long as I keep it stock power. The next event is June 28th. I should have it ready by then.

Too bad. The way it is now is so ugly it's perfect. What color are you gonna paint it?

As you can tell, this is a perfect terrible idea. I think we're all jealous, lol.
