in comes the second - i got a new job and the company will pay for commuter train, problem is that once you get to the train station, there isn't a bus that goes my way...so i found another 300d, 1985 on CL that needed a new radiator, paint...engine is pretty solid, surprisingly little blow back (less than the other one) and no major leaking issues... suspension knocks a little hear and there, but drives in a straight line. not bad for 1300 though.

so i told myself, the only thing i can do to this one is..fix radiator and fix the seat with the noodles... other than that, it will remain a beater, not ending up on jackstands in my garage for a 4 speed or anything like that...
Not yet!
Actually by having another Car that is the same You will have Parts in an emergency. I will buy you time till your Purchase the Parts.
