    <font color=blue>Cool, I did the same thing a year ago (89 mercury tracer wagon). I'm looking at a few late model Rams now, I'd rather get 12 mpg than drive a little car, but I got a ton of work done to the blazer. Not to mention it broke less since it wasnt being driven as much. That car will soon pay for itself unless you have to put a few trannys in it like I did [​IMG]

    I may be looking at a '92 Lumina Eurosport 4 door for $300. [​IMG]

    It has the 3.1 and an automatic. The only thing I need to get for it are the windshield and a back door glass.

    Can you say "cheap"? [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]



    I'm not picking my nose...I'm just pointing at my brain!! [​IMG]

    I had an '84 civic I drove the hell out of. Great little beaters, just don't let that engine overheat!
    I did 3 head gaskets on the stupid thing [​IMG]!
    If the temp got over half way, the darn head would warp [​IMG] Ahh well, was well worth it though.

    Good luck and congrats on a good, cheap car [​IMG]
