Scooped this one off of the Lincoln Craig'slist, lots of goodies but needs lots of work. Plan on flipping it but man it's so beautiful! 1992, 5 speed, sunroof, 160k, Tinted glass, Mac, 17x9 cobra rs, underdrive pulley set, mach 1 hood, exhaust. Fun!

I saw that listed on craigslist - glad to see someone got it who can appreciate it.

Drove it home from the shop and added more to the list, it has a nasty driveshaft vibration at 50. Burt hella fun, it's been 8 years since my last 5 speed.

Nice! Well with that picture of the balancer you found where the vibration was coming from lol Good luck man in great shape. I picked up a 95 not long ago, 60k miles PERFECT except 3 days and 100 miles later spun 2 rod bearings. Pulling the motor apart I found form a gasket in places it shouldn't be so wishing you better luck. But good news picked up a nice motor from Dave D and adding a bunch to it a little sooner than I planed but I think I'll live. LOL

Ok, moving this over to the tech forum. Drove it this weekend, down shifted into 2nd and got a nasty bang out of the tranny. No leaks, still drives but has a nasty grinding sound when the clutch pedal is released. ??? Just working out the bugs.....
