    That's the car Im pondering.

    I have a motor sitting around that I was going to use for mock-up. Would have to get trans though, probably 3 spd auto maybe even a glide.

    End goal being junkyard(ish) built turbo, engine would get some $.

    Stripped interior(already started)
    No wires anywhere other than those needed.(Painless kit)
    Caged
    UPR suspension parts


    More a less a strip only car. That at some point in very distant future may make it back on the road.

    Anyone gone through this with these cars please chime in, what should I look for as problem areas on the car?
    Weak points common rust areas that are hard to see?
    Any advice on the notch's little known but common problem areas would be a big help.

    Thanks men

    Awesome, I can't wait to start on my notch! That won't be until I get my LX done though...

    The only spot that I'd really check for rust on are the torque boxes, you can always beef them up though. That'd be nice to do anyway since it will be a strip car. If you're starting off fresh, I wouldn't be too worried about anything with the car really. I'd throw on a set of subframe connectors and get it going!
