Leslie got it for free after the owners ex-girlfriend ran it into a ditch, blew the motor and let it sit in a field for 2 years. 149K miles on the car, 9K of which are on the 1 year old 305. Leslie has pretty much replaced all of the internal stuff, now just saving up for a new front end and a paint job which will about make it a brand new car.
Rob Cusmano's Maroon 87 SS
Rob bought this from a party in New Jersey. They wouldn't say why they were selling but his guess was that they thought there was a serious problem with it. There was a loud hum coming out of the car when Rob took it for a test ride, so much that the seller turned the stereo up so he might not notice (he did, but didn't say a thing). Rob knew it was the rear. After he bought the car he confirmed the pinion was missing a tooth. He bought a junkyard rear for $85 and 2 hours later the car ran beautiful. The body is in real good shape and the car has 120K on the odometer. He spent $80 on parts for a tune up and now has a great daily driver for only $2000. Bet the guy would feel dumb now if he knew he could fix the car for $85.
