    Cool looking car.

    There are some things to look for but all in al they are solid cars.

    The headlight motors go bad due to the plastic motors. Is it an automatic or a manual? The trannys can be a ticking time bomb if an automatic. First thing to do is to change the fluid and filter if its an automatic.

    Lets get some more pics!

    Another thing to check is the targa top seals, the glue gm used sucked and they have a tendency to start separating at 70mph or so I had an 85 and the top cam close to flying off.

    My seals were bad but if you screw it in tightly you shouldnt have any issues.

    What rear end is in the car? If its a 2.5x gearing it is most likely a Dana 36 which are not quite as strong as the Dana 44s. I would also change the fluid in that when you get the chance.

    Looks like he never drives it! Looks good though and I'm sure under that dirt and a good polish, she'll shine beautifully!
