      Introducing my '79 244

      Hi, just bought a 1979 244 and thought I'd share it with you guys. I've only got 1 picture of it, but I'm already a huge fan of this car!

      Must be a Vancouver car; it doesn't seem to have any rust. :-)
      '88 244 auto (parts car), '89 244 5 spd. (daily driver), '92 245 5 spd. (my car) '80 Holiday Rambler/Ford E350 (tow vehicle and track crash pad), '95 GMC K2500 (local hauler/back-up tow vehicle), '83 Mazda RX7 (race car when I have the funds), '99 Miska 20' car hauler.

      From the 3 inch thick novel of repair bills I inherited with the car I've decided that it was pretty much a scrap car that the 2nd owner had re-welded, and repainted in a metallic fleck silver/grey. It's riding on a set of Bilstein HD's with IPD lowering springs, and I have replacement record for every single part on the car, bar the major engine components and the parking brake. Including the paint job ($3700) the build cost was $9000 over the last 10 years…
      Makes me even happier I bargained the seller to $1250 =]
      (And yes thats an Integra front bumper kit =P)
