Hey StarQuestClub, my names Taylor and I'm the proud new owner of an 85 Starion! I bought the car in Victoria, BC in August after my Integra decided to take a dump. I had never seen nor head of a starquest when I saw the ad on craigslist but fell in love with it as soon as I went to see it. She was originally from New Jersey and was imported to Canada a few years back. I have found a couple other quest owners here in Canada, but I'm wondering if there any other flattys here? She also has an electronic dash and stock louvers. The factory paint job was reddish orange with silver accents apparently, but its blue now (possibly Fiji blue, but I cant tell for sure). It has 145000 miles and is in great shape mechanically. The timing chain was recently tightened and the radiator was replaced. The only problems are peeling clear coat on the roof and door, no A/C belt, no antenna, and seized e-brake cables. Also the FPR is zip-tied onto the TB and a couple vacuum hoses are sealed with wires twisted around them lol. The only mod is a K&N filter. I plan on leaving it completely stock and just increasing its reliability until I am done school (2 more years of mechanical engineering left) since its my daily driver, and after that turning it into a beast since I'll have the time and money. Right now I am on a co-op (internship) in Edmonton, Alberta so I am trying to prepare her for the brutal Alberta winter (it can hit -40 Celcius occasionally). So far I have winter tires and a 250W oil pan heater, since I couldn't find a block heater. Anything else that you guys can think of? I've also installed a kill switch in the ignition circuit and hidden it because the key is stuck in the lock cylinder. Sorry for all the blabbing, picture time! http://imageshack.us/scaled/medium/706/d5qa.jpg http://imageshack.us/scaled/medium/69/bsgb.jpg http://imageshack.us/scaled/medium/542/s2k9.jpg My girlfriend loves it too! http://imageshack.us/scaled/medium/513/6bvj.jpg The dollar store pedal covers came off immediately, don't worry http://imageshack.us/scaled/medium/46/qpsc.jpg http://imageshack.us/scaled/medium/811/g2eq.jpg Engine bay when I got it http://imageshack.us/scaled/medium/850/eyoz.jpg Engine bay after cleaning and painting heatshields. Does anyone know the procedure for taking off the over-valve-cover pipe to paint? I am just worried because it looks like there is some liquid gasket goop where it connects to the compressor outlet and I don't want to destroy the seal. http://imageshack.us/scaled/medium/18/o7ie.jpg Im pretty sure this isnt stock... looks exactly like star wars typefont lol http://imageshack.us/scaled/medium/811/5rhm.jpg
