History
The quintessential $500 car. It needed work that the PO didn't want to do and would have been too expensive for a indy shop to throw parts at to fix...
It "needed a new cabin fan. = 10+ hr labor!" Turned out to be... a loose and corroded connection at the fan. Needed break disks and pads, a tie rod end and a few light bulbs to safety.
