History
Originally a Toy dealer sold it to freinds of mine in Seattle. They out grew it in 2000 and sold to me. I bought it with 80K in 2000. At 225K it is just now burning about 1/4 quart every 3K miles but emissions are still amazingly low. I try to change the oil every 2.5- 3K sometimes more frequently but add my own Dupont PTFE powder to the last quart and make my own Slick 50-home hooch'. I try and change every fluid I mean every fluid at least every two years always with the best synthetics. I change the brake and clutch cylinder fluid q year w/ dot 4. Rear wheel cylinders and L front caliper are original. I rebuilt the R caliper myself. New master cylinder prob could use a booster. Stupid exhaust manifold has a crack in it, poor design cuz it was a warranty issue way back when new. I just put my second timing belt in it , this time with a tensioner and waterpump sold as a kit. The Dayco belt was really thin and wimpy looking so at the last moment i used a German belt distributed by Continental, that look very 'gut'. Just Dec 014 i took it to Az from Boise along I-93 m the Great Basin Highway which i have done every year to visit my now deceased parents. I have lots of tips and ideas on how to keep old cars alive being that I have always been a tight wad since starting a family... and now approaching retiring. Engine is still uber strong and will cruz at 70 all day long in 5th but the stiff ride on pissy Idaho roads makes for a tip toppy ride so i keep it at 60- 65...yea it is slow but I have worked as an ICU nurse and have seen waaay to much.
