History
I purchased this car in August of 2008. It was used with 12,000 miles on it and had only the stereo replaced. It's a 5spd with the 1.6L, base model, no power anything, no A/C. The engine was replaced at 191,000 after a catastrophic timing belt failure on the highway. She now has 293,000 and still runs like a top, even after killing a medium sized black bear at 60MPH in 2014. Full front suspension replacement and wear parts as usual. Next item on the list is control arms, as the bushings are shot to shit. After that she'll be gutted, somewhat to make her lighter and easier to use for work. Then come the party parts. Exhaust, intake, possibly replacement ECU, turbo...
