Some of you might remember me 10 years ago i bought my first car 88 starion. Then i did the unforgetable i sold it... but this whole time i had been keeping track of her and had been trying to buy her back i just never had the money. Now august 30 2020.
8 years later, 5 owners later and a few different states later. I bought back my very first car back, 1988 starion. I do not know how to describe the feeling. Im sure you all would understand. I actually had to sell my 01 is300 to get the money to be able to buy it. She is in worse shape then when i first got her, but i got a good deal on it... Lots of extra parts. She is not running right now.

First need to get her running again then later worry about cosmetics...

Thanks for passing by

Great to hear!   That's incredible that you bought it back.   I had the opportunity once to buy my first car back but couldn't make it happen at the time.  It's long gone now.  

Which are the recent photos?  The ones with no bumper at the bottom?
