A few weeks ago, I scored a deal on a 35th Anniversary 5spd. Between rain, cool weather, and normal busy life - I wasn't able to really clean it up until today. I took the time to hand wash it, fresh coat of wax (which it needed) and cleaned a few other areas of the car. Overall, I'm happy with the condition of it, especially for 141k miles. The paint is in good shape, some rock chips, few door dings but not much. The bolsters are in good shape and not ripped - the seats could use a good cleaning, but otherwise in good shape. It needs a few things, but nothing too expensive :) It runs great, I've already taken a trip to KC with it. So enough with the chit chat, here's some pics I took tonight.

Nice find. Now take those floor mats out and save them. Unless of course, you have another set.

btw, much nicer than the xr7 you were looking at ;) ....well maybe not the interior.:rolleyes:

It's bone stock at the moment.

I bought a set of generic black mats so I could pull the 35th mats out and only use them at special times.

And yeah - the interior isn't perfect - the seats need a good cleaning, but I'm not looking forward to cleaning the suede.

I do have a short mod list planned for it, but nothing crazy. Just make it a bit more fun to drive :)

New cats and resonator, 5% JS pulley, tint the windows, and CD player are on the list along with a ZR intake, 2xIC, and Walboro 255lph fuel pump that are in the garage. I'd also like to add an MPII, B&M Ripper Shifter, and maybe wheels as well :) But that's if money allows for it. I already enjoy driving it though so anything I do just adds to it :D

I promise it will be a short list of the most effective parts that I have ever put on my blue car, It will be the cliffnotes of that car. ;)

i have this little problem that my short list keeps growing :confused:

my short list started out as an od pulley, ic fan, and rear end gears. 2 years later its almost a completely different car, with back up sc's, tranny's, motors, int/ext parts, ext. im starting to feel like its a nasty drug addiction. cost about the same to. got 1 parts car just about completely stripped and by the looks of it ill be getting another 1 to strip here in about a week. and no im not stripping any that are usable. i search to the lost cause cars to strip. there not many of them but there are some out there. speaking of such, the 90 sc parts car i have atm is about done being stripped. does anyone need any body parts from it before i scrap its shell?(if yes, they are going cheap so long as they are being used to fix up another sc)

are the wheels painted black by factory or is that something someone did?

Anniversary SC's came with black wheels.

And a machined lip, If its all painted then someone did it. It also has special Bird Wings on the centercap with blue accents.

I'll probably stop by Monday. I'm not in Omaha for work near as often as I used to be, so we'll see what Monday brings.

And nope, don't need any of those parts :) Thanks though

Who said I wanted more power?

I've got a ZR Intake that will be going on, and at the moment - don't see the need in a larger MAF or TB.

For Christmas I received 3 picture frames, one with 3 pictures in it and one with just 1 in it. After I got the gifts, I was sent a few of the pictures and thought I'd share them for those who aren't on my facebook.

We'll start with my favorite

I'm looking forward to hanging them on the wall :)

In other news, I also got the garage at the apartment on Wednesday - just in time for the latest round of snow :) so it's protected from the snow this time.
