Here are some pics of the 180 that I took recently. I cleaned her out, replaced most of the fluids, put some oil in the cylinders, replaced the battery, gave her some starter fluid and after just a few tries, she started right up! I drove her around just a little bit (using the e-brake to stop). There's definetly work to be done, but I was amazed at the great condition the engine was in. The interior needs a bit of work, actually a LOT of work, but I think I have located a donor car that I can get parts from. I have some videos of starting her up that I will try to post and link too soon.
Some of the major things that need to be done soon are to locate some seats, replace all the hoses, filters, belts, etc. Get fluid in the brakes and bleed/diagnose their condition, grease up everything, and figure out where to go from there.
I'm sure I'll probably have some more questions in the future, so stay tuned!
