I know I'm forgetting some things.
Stored in garage unless being driven.
The Bads:
Left turn signal isn't working currently. Had it working in the shop, didn't work last time I drove it; all signal lights flash with the hazard warning switch as they should.
One of the studs on the exhaust port of cylinder 1 is missing and there is a small exhaust leak there.
Head gasket leaks a very small amount of oil from one point above the oil filter.
The rear drivers side coilover was welded slightly off center, however it is adjusted to match the other side's alignment.
The paint and body work is not in perfect condition, it has been driven.
The most recent paint job, done before I acquired the car, was not awesome--there are some drips, oversprays, and lack of masking.
Wheels were bought with the intention of cutting flares, so they are a touch wide and there is tire rub on full compression in the rear. Either narrower wheels with the current tires or flares with wider ties would be the ideal situation.
