I bought this car in 1998 - I wanted a unique, tough-looking musclecar that could burn a lot of rubber. She was my daily driver until 2001. Then, it was driven occasionally, mostly weekends and summertime until 2007. Since then has been parked on my parent's driveway and started up occasionally until 2012, when a city ordinance forced me to move it to a storage lot.
Previous owner had suspension re-done at 75,000 miles, so there's ~20,000 miles on springs, shocks, ball joints, stabilizer links.
Between 1998 and 2003: Engine and transmission rebuilt, about $2,000 in performance engine parts, and another ~$2,000 in other parts. I have receipts for most of the items listed above. Interior restoration was started but never finished, the drivetrain is where I put 95% of my budget and effort into.
