I broke the upper steering wheel/ignition switch cover,  that's what the delay is  oh and the hood prop,  the '86 I have out is nice but different style than the '88  which is hanging all good will try to exchange them .....the fuse box cover is different also.

I remember seeing this car for a while on the local CL here.  Glad someone got it ... looks like after some cosmetic work you might have a decent car.  Does it run?

Looks like the previous owner had a pissed off girlfriend that keyed the car up! Happens to the best of us...

What is the original color?

Well I have posted in virtual mechanic on this car's problems and ordeals...it is starting everytime and revving at 2000rpm for 2mins then kicks down to normal.  It is re-starting everytime when hot(that was an issue)...I'm thinking about gettting it back on the road and just driving it but seems like there is rear, trans, brake noises/issues.  I have rear/tranny's on stand-by  oops prob not to good to say I have tranny's on stand-by :wub:

Haha, small world. MitsuMark and me were cool back in the day, we're both North Jersey guys. Good to see he's still got the SQ disease. He definitely knows his stuff and I learned a bit from him over the years but lost touch. That's also who sold me my 83 hood for $350 lol.

PM'd you.
