Everytime I see a low mileage SQ for sale, I always wonder how well they truly run....I bet the EBAY listing said this car ran perfect.

"It only has 56k miles. Runs perfect"

Honestly, this car was running fairly well the first week or so after it came off of the transporter.  I drove it across town several days on 20 mile trips.  Right now, it appears the plug wires went south on me after heating up in the FL summer traffic.

But you're right, always hard to know how any car will run through pics.  I took a gamble and honestly, don't believe it would have made much of difference unless I drove it for a week before making the purchase.  The good news with this particular 86 is the inside is amazing.  The body has zero rust and the engine compartment was unmolested except for the injectors.
