Thought I should start a project car thread just in case I need some advise on problems that seem to pop up occasionaly because we got it for only a dollar and it needs a lot of work. We just replaced the harmonic ballancer, and the power steering pump but that still leaks even though it is new. The exhaust is all new. We have also replaced the cis injection lines because on was broken. I have also bought a set of guages to install in the dash once we get it running right.

You got it for a buck? Well done! What's its history?

It was driven away from flood waters and than parked under a tarp for 6 years.

First we got it running after 6 years of sitting. Than we had to replace the exhaust because after taking a trip arround in the yard it fell apart in the gerage. That's when we put in all new radiator hoses and brakes. Just the other day we took the harmonic ballancer off and put a new one on. Also we replaced the power steering pump because it was screaming.

Things left to fix;
New tiers
New battery the one we have is 6 years old
It needs new paint and their is a hole on the rear passengers door
Also the trunk leaks when it rains
The power steering pump still leaks
