    1993 SC - Low miles, but Bad Head Gasket

    Looking to sell my 1993 SC that now has a blown head gasket. I don't work on cars, so I've spent much time trying to see about having it fixed, but the price is more than I can handle ($1400+). Haven't driven the car for about a month as I don't want to damage the engine. The car drove well and all of a sudden the gasket problem.

    Attaching some pics in case anyone would want to fix. Car has 62,500 miles on it. Has special decal and paint highlighting. Rust on bottom quarterpanel behind front wheels. I'm the original owner, and have the title. Also, I recently(12/15/2008) purchased a complete set of DUNLOP SP WINTER SPORT M3 tires and had them mounted to my rims. They're still in new condition ($550 with mounting). Battery is under 1 year. I live near Chicago. I would fix myself, but would rather get a family-style car. Asking $850, mostly to cover cost of new tires and premium wheels.

    If anyone interested or needs more pics, please let me know.

    Thumbs up Seats!

    If someone buys this SC to part out,
    I would definitely be interested in the
    SEATS!!
    Provided, of course, they will mount
    right up in my '94.

    If it was a 5spd car I would take it.

    Hope the car goes to good hands.

    Wish i had a truck and trailer. The hg job is pretty easy (i've done quite a few). I'd get a new fender and repaint the thing (or peel off graphics) though.

    If no one buys this, will you be interested in parting it out? If someone else does buy this, and is using it for parts, please let me know there are a few things I would be interested in seeing as this is just like my red SC.

    Well guys, she is home and in good hands - have my work cut out for me a little bit on this one but nothing I haven't dealt with before hand.

    Overall I would say the car is Very nice (factoring car as a whole)...rust is the only real down side of the entire car which I guess is what's expected of a Northern car.

    Here are some pictures. Chicago was a fun trip and I think I did alright overall in the purchase.
