    Congrats so far as you don't have the electrical gremlins I have. So far everyone's car has started with fresh battery and fluid changes except for mine.

    Keep the updates coming.

    Johnny, I know where your car is! It is in VERY good and capable hands! I kinda thought that was where it was going to go. (no, I'm not saying the exact location because it has never been posted)

    He reported to me just now....AND it needs too much....I am going to have it picked up.
    It runs and moves. At least that is a good thing for the transporter. Now to find one....

    Bummer but I got to say, I'm kind of relieved.

    From the quotes I got the running part should save you a few hundred.

    Re: 1990 Consulier GTP Targa

    PART of the note I got:

    Radiator need replace?
    Water pump OK?
    A/C?
    Heater core?
    Brakes? (other than fronts which we know are bad)
    Clutch pedal appears to be working.
    As far as the brakes...when you just softly touch the brake pedal, the
    brakes lock so you have to let out the clutch and give it gas (at which
    time it fights the brakes to get the car moving). (and no, the e-brake is
    not on)

    In summary: It's a super neat car. Unfortunately, it's been sitting for
    many years, (again not sure what they told you, but regardless of what they
    told you, it's been sitting for a long, long, time.). I'm surprised I was
    able to get it at least started without changing more parts so far, but
    again, the cooling system is the real issue here.

    Ouch!!! Once you get it home do some research on vinegar flushing. I have had great results with it. Then again 2.2s are so cheap to rebuild I would probably just tear it down if I had the space and time. Or you could just install the raffle motor in it....

    With all of that in the coolant system I would make sure to remove and flush that radiator. Cause, I'm sure a new one would only cost you $2k ish to have made.

    Ouch...sorry to see that I wonder if that ever had anything other than water in it. That is a lot of corrosion.

    Haha. So true. Just dont break the windshield while transporting it. Thats another $2g.

    These cars arent for the light of wallet if anything breaks. I do have Slowe Speed working on mine so not worried about too many parts as he can fabricate most anything. Radiator and Glass excluded.

    Why couldn't he do the rad? Get a custom core and weld up the tanks?
