Ok. Checked her out a little closer today. I see no rust, the drivers qaurter panel has some dents, the front spoiler some cracks, the rear bumper cover looks to have a very poorly repaired tear and some peeling paint. The interior has peeling wood and a crack in the dashpad, no front floormats and mice poo. The engine is also covered with acorn shells and rodent poo. Here are some more pics.

So I decided to throw a battery in her and try to start her up. Suprised me and after the starter sounding like the pinion wasn't getting pushed out a couple of times she finally cranked over and started right up on 4 year old gas. Here's a link to the video. Www.YouTube.com/watch?v=qZC6EBTHUrg

Don't sound too bad at all. these old girls will surprise you. Well worth saving in my book.

Last call before she goes out to parts. She is very saveable. I will put some air in the tires and drive tonight. Maybe that will help. Hate to do it, but if she's not gone to a good home by Sunday she's open for parts to all of you that have been asking for this and that.
Thanks.

Got sidetracked tonight and didn't get a chance to try anything else to the car. Guess it doesn't matter, looks like its going to be the big scrap yard in the sky for the old girl. I would even get her going again if someone could come up with a special way for her to pass the sniffer. Romeo pm me and ill give you my number.
