Wow this thread seeing lots of action, nice! Why would a car get towed with no tags? I've never heard of that.

I love a good project:biggrinjester:imo go with sr20det swap instead of v6, especially if handling is important. Is it 1.8 or 2.0 currently? Wow it's in pretty decent shape!
Sr20det is a great choice, 2.0 turbo is a perfect base for a car with handaling in mind.

Kinda hard to read but only 97k on the odo

Very cool man, it also resembles my dad's Subaru XT a lil.

There may be a steel woven ground strap from the radio chassis to the car. If broken, this may affect tuner, maybe, especially for FM, jus guessin

Well I narrowed it down to the radio being bad so I went out to a car audio shop to get the wiring and the dash kit dug around the shed found my jensen radio iv had laying around and put it in today, and... it all works perfect cd player AM and FM all work :D Heres a pic,

.

note: crappy tape deck under it does not work and will be removed when I find a new dash storage compartment.

Beautiful car but im a little confused by the fact that it seems that you went from a beautiful jet black to a stock blue paint job?
