My car was in pretty good shape when I got it. I'm only the second owner so she was loved by the original owner all her life. The car hadn't been driven in 6 years so it took a little work to get that going, but all in all the car was in great shape. I had to change all the rubber lines like brakes, fuel, cooling... I have done some other minor work too. Next big step is replacing all the suspension bushings. I plan on tackling that before the summer is over.
