New here - Finally a C36 owner :)

Hello! Just over a week ago I purchased a 1995 C36. I have been wanting one for ages but never found the right one. I was really iffy about buying one I'd have to ship so that made it even more difficult.

Thankfully, I was lucky enough to do a craigslist search and it came up! Like it was meant to be lol.

It was for sale by a shop that did all the work on it. Unfortunately the previous owner passed away and so his widow asked the shop to sell it for her. It was an awesome experience as I was also able to get all the records and the shop told me all about what had been done to the car and how much the previous owner took care of it.

It has 137,xxx miles. Water pump was just replaced as well as the wiring harness, head gasket among many other minor things. Car is solid and I couldn't be happier.

Only things I see that bother me a little is that it seems to me that it has a c43 front bumper. There's no accidents reported but maybe the previous owner liked it better. Either way, my goal is to put the right one on there. Also, my fuel gauge acts up lol...not sure if it's the cluster or the actual device that's in the tank.

Overall, I'm loving it!

It is my first non-honda car. So I have a lot to learn. Be patient with my noob questions
