Default New-to-me Car (95 Del Sol Build)

What's goin on guys? Well I just got a 1988 CRX Si with 145,000 miles for $800... It's got the quarter panel rust but that will be fixed ASAP... I dont really have any plans for it, other than to fix that. The engine is very strong and has no leaks...the car rides 30 times better than my 98 civic.... Any ideas, warnings, suggestions will be welcome...will add pics later on in the week, it's been raining like crazy here.




Del Sol Build Starts On Second Page

edit: I want to pat myself on the shoulder, those are the first pics I've ever posted on this website and i've been a member for years lol sorry guys, that will change from now on....

AND i see what you mean, but bro...after I show more pics of this car, with how old it is, you'd be surprised as to how good its condition is compared to a lot of the CRX's i see on forums and around here. That's why im hesitant to even think about selling it... I think if anything I would just sell the EK, BUT, I would like to keep that as my DD...but we'll see.
